Olsen Gruin | Best New Art Spaces to Visit This Fall

Congratulations OLSEN GRUIN on being featured as one of the best new art spaces to visit this fall.

Opened in New York’s Nolita neighborhood in March 2017, this gallery is a collaboration between Tim Olsen, a former Sydney-based gallerist, Emerald Gruin and her partner, Adrian, who were previously involved with Rox Gallery that shuttered its Lower East Side space in 2014. Their roster of artists includes some of Australia’s biggest contemporary exports, including TV Moore, George Byrne and Leila Jeffreys, along with American artists such as KOAK. Their venue is also a platform for contemporary Aboriginal artists to reach U.S. markets, and they recently held a group show organized by Adam Knight, vice president of the Aboriginal Art Association of Australia, featuring 15 artists. The gallery is presenting new works by Sydney-born, L.A.-based photographer George Byrne this fall.

Paul Davies | Domus

The MAK Center for Art and Architecture in West Hollywood and This x That (who dedicates to bringing architecture and design to broader audiences) present a site-specific installation by artist Paul Davies at the Fitzpatrick-Leland House in Los Angeles.

“Reflecting the influence of mentor Frank Lloyd Wright, the house exemplifies Rudolph Schindler’s practice of bringing the natural environment into interior space. In opposition, therefore, to the notion of modern architecture’s austerity, the relationship between the interior and the exterior – through its continuity – is complicated once again by Davies who layers stencils of alternative landscapes to disrupt the boundaries between built and natural environments.”
