Since 2010 BROADWAY 1602 represents the Estate of prewar Bauhaus artist and Black Mountain College pioneer Xanti Schawinsky and in 2016 began a collaboration with the family of 1920s stage design avant-gardist Boris Aronson .

In 2016 the gallery opened two new locations BROADWAY 1602 UPTOWN & HARLEM.

Barbara Seiler

barbara seiler_barbara seiler zurichBarbara Seiler Gallery represents, promotes and supports young, international artists who work with different media including sound installations and performance. The gallery program explores questions in the fields of conceptual and curatorial practice and collaborates with curators or ‘curartists’ in specific exhibition projects. The gallery’s objective is to provide a platform and initiate a discourse, talks and new forms of exhibition. The kitchen (the gallery space used to be a tobacco store with adjoining apartment) serves as project space within the exhibition space: It has hosted a kitchen specific sound installation by Justin Bennett, and has been turned into a sports bar to set the stage for the video ‘Live from the Aquarium’ by Dina Danish. In 2012 it hosted a ‘performative installation’ by Ante Timmermans which stated one of the initial points for the artist’s presentation at Manifesta 9 in Genk, BE and his solo exhibition ‘Ante Post Ante’ at Kunstmuseum St. Gallen, CH. With its new satellite project SPUTNIK, as well as with the current exhibition ‘This is the house that Jack built’ in an old empty townhouse in Zurich, Barbara Seiler Gallery breaches out of its accustomed gallery space to raise questions about current exhibition practice and site specificity.

Edward Tyler Nahem

Edward Tyler Nahem is a New York City based art dealer, theater and film producer.

His eponymous gallery is located on West 57th Street in New York City and specializes in Modern, Post-War, and Contemporary art. Originally founded more than thirty years ago, the gallery has developed an international reputation for exceptional monographic and thematic exhibitions.

The gallery’s profile has been further honed by its annual participation in prestigious international art fairs: Art Basel, Art Basel Miami Beach, Frieze Masters London, ARCO Madrid, Abu Dhabi Art, and beginning in 2015, Art Basel Hong Kong.

Edward Tyler Nahem Fine At was originally located in a townhouse on East 66th street in Manhattan and it was in this location that Nahem first became associated with presenting singular artworks by well known artists such as de Kooning, Lichtenstein, Mitchell, Picasso, Richter, and Ruscha, among many others. This reputation has only grown over the past three decades. The gallery has also presented a wide array of exhibitions of work by Contemporary artists and works with Erik Benson, iROZEALb, Andres Serrano, Jose Maria Sicilia, as well as others. According to Nahem “Our role as gallerists is that of stewards of the creative world. Through close client relationships, we are proud to have played an instrumental role in helping build important collections around the globe.”

Nahem is as passionate about his work in the art world as he is about his extra-curricular activities, which are many. For him this means constantly deepening his connection to African and African-American culture, music and social issues.

“From the first moment I heard the unique and beautiful music streaming from coming out of various countries in primarily West Africa, I have had an unquenchable love affair with the region. I have been listening to the music and following the career of Youssou NDour for well over 25 years,” Nahem says. In 2008, he produced the documentary Youssou NDour: I Bring What I Love which traced the Senegalese superstar’s musical career. Nahem has long supported the singer’s decades of activism in fighting malaria (through Malaria No More), speaking out on social issues, and promoting the culture of Africa. A new documentary, Incorruptible, to be released in 2015, chronicles the controversial and at times violent 2011 campaign for the Senagalese presidency with a score and title song by the pop star Akon, who himself has deep roots in Senegal.

Nahem was also a lead producer of Fela!, the Tony Award winning Broadway show and Royal National Theatre hit. After seeing an off-Broadway production of the musical about the Nigerian singer and activist Fela Kuti, Nahem actively worked to help bring the show to Broadway and London. Fela! ran for fourteen months on Broadway, receiving eleven Tony nominations and winning three Tony awards. A love affair with Fela’s irresistible music and courageous story for over thirty years lead to this extraordinary and life-changing experience. “For me Fela was to music what Picasso was to art. With his need to put his art out there at any cost –beatings and arrests included. He was an avatar.” Nahem was instrumental in bringing Fela! to Lagos, Nigeria in April 2011, to Kuti’s people, in an emotional and historic homecoming.

Nahem has strong relationships within both the African diaspora in New York, as well as within the African- American community. With close ties to artists, musicians and cultural figures, he is currently working on several national and international cultural projects. Among these is the afore-mentioned documentary as well as a film based on the New York Times best-selling book Monster by Walter Dean Myers.

In June 1998 the Georg Kargl Fine Arts Gallery with an exhibition space of more than 350 m² on 3 levels was opened in Schleifmühlgasse, which has recently developed into one of Vienna’s most renowned gallery districts.

Since then Georg Kargl has not only focused on continuous exhibition activities but also on positioning and placing contemporary artists, whose significance is reflected in present-day international discourse

Besides the existing gallery in Schleifmühlgasse, Georg Kargl created the BOX in spring 2005.

This new exhibition hall has made it possible to act flexibly and to realise exciting projects of artists on a short-term basis. For the BOX Georg Kargl succeeded in inspiring the internationally recognised American artist Richard Artschwager to confront himself for the first-time with a front design, which has been integrated as a permanent installation into Vienna’s public space.

Adam J Boxer

2015_ADAM_YALE_PHOTOAdam Boxer has been in the fine arts business for over 25 years, specializing in art of the inter-war period of the 1920s-1930s, particularly the Dada, Surrealist, and Constructivist movements. In 1994, he co-founded Ubu Gallery in New York City and assumed full ownership in 2009.

Ubu has presented more than 75 exhibitions of 20th century avant-garde art. The focus is on the avant-garde, particularly historically important artists and movements that have not received appropriate attention, and  serious explorations of areas covered by few other galleries, including acclaimed survey exhibitions of Polish, Romanian, and Czech avant-garde art, have earned the gallery a worldwide reputation as a leading presence on the international cultural scene.

The exhibitions have received numerous reviews in The New York Times, with additional reviews in publications ranging from Artforum and Art in America to The New Yorker and Vanity Fair, as well as international pieces in Vogue, the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung and Die Welt.

Ubu Gallery participates in many of the most prestigious international art fairs in the world, including the annual Paris art fair, FIAC, as well as Frieze Masters in London. Ubu also participated in Art Basel in Basel, Switzerland for over eight years. Boxer’s particular expertise and knowledge of the art market is frequently sought by art institutions and auction houses, for whom he consults on a regular basis. His knowledge and his important inventory have also been invaluable to a number of scholars in their research on the avant-garde, particularly on Surrealism. He is specifically thanked in many publications, including “Behind Closed Doors: The Art of Hans Bellmer” by Thérèse Lichtenstein; “Surrealism, Politics and Culture” edited by Raymond Spiteri and Donald Lacoss; and “Hans Bellmer: The Anatomy of Anxiety” by Sue Taylor.

Peter Surace

Pete by Randall Bellows IIIPeter Surace founded RARE Gallery to help shape, nurture, and promote the careers of emerging visual artists who had not yet widely exhibited.  After 17 years, his mission remains constant.  While many of the gallery’s artists have benefited from extensive international exposure and have been included in prestigious museum shows and collections, Peter makes room in the schedule every season for artists new to the marketplace.  RARE was the first gallery to open in the heart of Manhattan’s historic meatpacking district, where it remained for five years before relocating to Chelsea in 2003. It has occupied its present space at 547 West 27th Street since 2009.

Peter seeks out artists whose work meets the following criteria: (1) The work must be directly connected to the artists’ life experiences, particularly in terms of their most formative years; (2) the processes and materials utilized must be atypical, unusual, or unique, and not for the sake of mere virtuosity, but rather for the purpose of amplifying content; (3) the artists’ craftsmanship must be evident in the work and part of its visual appeal – in other words, the creators’ hand must be present.  Slick work will not pass Peter’s litmus test; and (4) the final result must be sincere in its intentions – sincerity takes precedence over irony and art about art, at least for him.

 Within a year of becoming a member of the New York State Bar in 1984 (after obtaining his JD degree from Fordham University School of Law), Peter embarked on a career in public relations and sports marketing that lasted for more than a decade.  Drawn to the arts for as long as he can remember, thanks to encouraging and tolerant parents, he opened RARE in 1998.

Brian Butler

1etB_VvI9NyXtuiryQXWr5K2JOFGyG1v4Kr8Fus-h4EBrian Butler (born 1961) is an art dealer and owner of 1301PE in Los Angeles.

Butler was born and raised in Los Angeles, California and graduated from UC Berkeley where he studied art history. In 1991, Butler began Brain Multiples to produce and exhibit artists’ editions.

The original incarnation of 1301PE was as 1301, which was located at 1301 Franklin Street, Santa Monica, CA. The founding principle was to present world-class exhibitions of artists primarily based in Los Angeles.

The first show at 1301 was Raw Material by Kate Ericson and Mel Ziegler, which opened on 29 April 1992. Shows at 1301 featured work by artists Jamey Bair, Angela Bulloch, Meg Cranston, Sarah Seager and Thaddeus Strode, as well as a group show called “Into the Lapse” which presented video work by artists General Idea, Sean Landers, Jim Shaw, Diana Thater, Bruce and Norman Yonemoto and others.

In 1996, 1301 became 1310PE, standing for Projects and Editions. For a period 1301PE had no permanent location, and Butler curated exhibitions in other galleries, such as an exhibition of the artist Angela Bulloch at the gallery owned by Marc Foxx. Other projects curated during this time included a collaboration between an Iranian carpet weaver and the artist Mike Kelley, the work Ranch by Jorge Pardo and Jason Rhoades, and Diana Thaters presentation of “The best animals are the flat animals and The best space is the deep space” at MAK Center for Art and Architecture. In 1998, 1301PE moved to its current location on the Miracle Mile in Los Angeles. Between 2005 and 2008 Butler took over as director of ARTSPACE, a nationally funded, non-collecting art institution in Auckland, New Zealand. While at ARTPSACE, Butler established an endowment and helped found a publishing arm of the gallery called Clouds. With the project Speculation, Butler curated an exhibition for the 52nd Venice Biennale in the format of a book. He selected seven nationally recognized New Zealand curators who in turn selected thirty artists to present a collection of their works.

In 2008, Butler returned to Los Angeles, where 1301PE continues to exhibit the work of Los Angeles-based as well as internationally acclaimed artists. In addition to established artists whom the gallery has represented, such as Fiona Banner, Uta Barth, Charline von Heyl, Jack Goldstein, Ann Veronica Janssens, Philippe Parreno, Jessica Stockholder, Pae White, and Paul Winstanely, 1301PE also works with young artists including Jan Albers, Fiona Connor, Kirsten Everberg, Jorge Mendez Blake, Blake Rayne, SUPERFLEX, Kerry Tribe, and Ana Prvacki.

Adam Moskowitz

Portriat of Adam MoskowitzAdam Moskowitz is the Principal of Moskowitz Bayse, a Los Angeles-based gallery that specializes in the sale of contemporary artworks, as well as the development, exhibition, and publication of its represented artists. 

He previously worked as founder, owner and chief curator of his eponymous Moskowitz Gallery, also a Los Angeles based contemporary art gallery, specializing in the representation and exhibition of important emerging artists. His success in programming and operating the gallery to date has established his reputation as a meaningful gallerist in Los Angeles and fortified his point of view as a curator. In doing so, he has elevated the experience of the exhibition for artists, viewers and clients. Similar in nature to Moskowitz Bayse, Moskowitz Gallery functions as a platform for championing artists. In addition to mounting five institutional-quality exhibitions in its first year, Mr. Moskowitz has coordinated over twenty events including artist interviews, lectures, curatorial walkthroughs, dance and musical performances, and a classical concert series sponsored by Steinway & Sons. 

Prior to opening Moskowitz Gallery, Mr. Moskowitz worked as an independent curator, writer, and art dealer. He started his career in Boston where he cultivated many relationships with artists, most of whom he continues to work with closely. In 2012 he moved to Los Angeles in order to position himself and his artists more squarely in the global contemporary economy and dialogue. Simultaneously, he maintains his own artistic practice with the same passion and diligence with which he has built a successful gallery. 

Mr. Moskowitz studied Music Production and Engineering with a minor in classical violin at Berklee College of Music, in conjunction with Printing and Art History at the School of The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. His work ethic, interdisciplinary artistic sensibilities, and autodidactic personality give him the unique ability to cultivate relationships with artists and clients with extraordinary enthusiasm, academic rigor and intensity.
