Annabelle Selldorf designs new Marianne Boesky Gallery in Aspen

New York—based architect Annabelle Selldorf (under her firm Selldorf Architects) has designed a new space for the Marianne Boesky Gallery in Aspen, Colorado. The new 3,000-square-foot project, known as "Boesky West," will occupy the former cabin of 1800s photographer James “Horsethief” Kelly.

Working with local studio David Johnston Architects, the cabin will be reconfigured to serve as a new arm for the Marianne Boesky Gallery, which is located in Chelsea, New York. While the inaugural exhibition is still in the works, the gallery will open in Aspen on March 8, 2017. However, works by artists Frank Stella and Larry Bell, who are good friends with Marianne Boesky, will be on show come March 8. The exhibition will look at the pair's work in the realm of abstraction, material, light, and space while forming a discussion around their practices.

“I have long been inspired by Aspen’s extreme landscape, and the creativity that it has fueled among artists, musicians, writers, and so many other individuals of diverse background and interests," said Marianne Boesky in a press release. "With the evolution of my vision for the New York-based locations, now seemed the right moment to launch a new platform to inspire further engagement with this vibrant landscape... I see Boesky West as a space to present the work of our artists in a completely different context and environment than New York, expanding the experience of their work and introducing it to new audiences. At the same time, Boesky West offers the gallery more opportunity to experiment and collaborate with not only artists, but with curators, art historians, critics, and other members of the community.”

Last year the gallery's flagship Chelsea location doubled its size to 13,000 square feet and now, with the new space in Aspen, Boesky intends to create opportunities for interaction among artists and Aspen's dramatic landscape and its cultural community.

On View> Roxy Paine’s “Denuded Lens” at New York’s Marianne Boesky Gallery

Roxy Paine: Denuded Lens Marianne Boesky Gallery 509 West 24th Street, New York Through October 18 The artist Roxy Paine has long been interested in exploring combinations of the natural with the mechanical or manmade. In his latest exhibition, his first at the Marianne Boesky Gallery, called Denuded Lens, he has created a large-scale diorama of one of the more mundane but intrusive spaces of contemporary life: the airport security screening area. 03-denuded-lens-nyc Built out of computer-sculpted and hand-carved maple, the unconventional materials help to defamiliarize Checkpoint, giving the viewer an opportunity to take a critical view of a space characterized by surveillance and control. The exhibition also includes a few other freestanding pieces—a pinball machine, recording equipment—which are similarly realized in soft maple.
