Nov 15 2011-Feb 29 2012
Marlborough and Steinitz galleries are pleased to announce the opening of Le Cabinet de Curiosités, conceived and curated by Thierry W Despont, opening on Saturday, November 12th in the former headquarters of New York Mercantile Exchange at 6 Harrison Street. Le Cabinet de Curiosités is a unique, off-site installation in which contemporary art converges with 18th- and 19th-century antiquities in a setting that blurs the confines of time and categorization. Le Cabinet de Curiosités presents work by Marlborough artists Thierry W Despont, Manolo Valdés and the late Claudio Bravo, as well as rare antique furniture from the Steinitz Collection. The exhibition will continue through February 2012.
