Bosi Damjanovic Gallery Opens at 48 Orchard
Here on the Lower East Side, new galleries are popping up like nobody’s business. Indeed, at latest count, there are in excess of thirty-five within the borders. A bunch of new showrooms were announced in the last few months, most recently Callicoon Fine Arts and Steven Harvey. Now, on the day pegged for a coordinated season opening for neighborhood galleries, we bring word of another new art space.
Built over four years ago, the ten-story 50 Orchard Street condo had some initial troubles filling the ground-level stores. Scaramouche would eventually take up residence here, but the sister space one door south at 48 remained a vacant dustbin until now. Indeed, in recent weeks, the folks behind Bosi Damjanovic have been preparing this forsaken unit.
Below is the mission statement from the website:
BOSIDAMJANOVIC Gallery was established by Sandro Bosi and Nikola Damjanovic, art dealers based in Rome and New York. Active in both primary and secondary markets, the gallery occupies the space at 48 Orchard Street (between Grand and Hester) and it focuses its attention on creating a dynamic space for artists and other art practitioners to realize their vision and establish a platform for discourse that will nurture a thoughtful and creative community as well as attract new audiences. International in scope, the gallery exhibits and communicate the work of both emerging and well-established artists, selected for their unique aesthetic language and fascinating vision.
Our objective includes presenting an ambitious annual program periodically reinforced by the participation of guest curators that comprises at least six exhibitions, publications and catalogues; the central concern when establishing the program is to create a space in which an artist can present a single important work of art or a coherent body of work within a focused environment.
The inaugural installation kicks off tonight, and features the artwork of Beatrice Scaccia and Marta Jovanovic.
