Intimate tours of contemporary
art galleries in NYC.
LOCULIS is my curation
of the curators.
We meet in Manhattan's Chelsea
neighborhood and head to a
selection of galleries. I provide
background material and
information on the exhibits;
discussion is encouraged.
I try to make these tours a
great introduction to New York's
(sometimes daunting)
contemporary art scene…
…and provide a unique way
to see some of the best art
the city has to offer.
Currently, tours take place
on Saturdays from 11:00am
till about 1:30pm. Tours are
generally limited to around
12 people. The cost is $20
per person.
I am an artist, critic and
art devotee. I take a direct,
engaged, sometimes
eccentric approach
to art-viewing.
For an on-the-ground report
from a LOCULIS tour, read
Steven Karl's article in Coldfront;
for some of my art criticism,
see my gallery reviews in
every issue of Harp & Altar.
