Century Pictures

Gallery in The Bushwick area

Add this to my venues

The idea for Century Pictures was formed in response to a manic, predominately digitized glance that has overtaken the art-viewing experience. Presenting works or objects that often will span generations, the gallery aims to offer an alternative to the frenetic eye. While considering the historical as mooring to the dynamic movements of our future, we acknowledge a common thread; that many referents were conceived in radical experimentation.

Surveying our cultural past suggests that artistic experimentation is seldom fostered in exclusive neighborhoods, but is rather nurtured where artists themselves live, work, and exchange ideas. Curated, museum quality shows are an undeniable gift of the large galleries that will continue to inhabit Manhattan. Century Pictures proposes an alternative juncture–a space that compels visual and intellectual query between generational, compositional, or tangential precedents. This sets the stage for an open-ended exploration that is not confined to market-based definitions. Working collaboratively with renowned artists and designers, who are not represented by the gallery, our goal is to actively explore and test boundaries. The interest lies in starting a conversation, rather than having the final word.
