What is a piece of clothing that “works”? Who is working whom? Is the one who poses the one who actually “works” hardest?

This Saturday, 9/22, Paris’ NEW GALERIE opens their US transplant, aptly titled, NEW YORK GALLERY. It’s not just the NY branch, but a space where “project formats and event temporality are flexible.” As opposed to their Paris space, no artists will be represented, instead they are expanding their open approach to collaboration.
The [inaugural] exhibition focuses on new approaches to documentation and dissemination – often linked in practice by formats known as social media — that allow us to rethink the status and role of the exhibition. The exhibition brings together actors, practices, and objects coming from different backgrounds (fashion, video games, special effects and visual arts). The center of gravity remains contemporary art. It is about proposing an «expanded» way of reading in the gallery. Between actors from the same medium or cutting across the media, participation and collaboration define fields of reception specific to each work. It can go from the pop up store to the documentation of an unboxing, from the single digital object to a movie trailer, from the advertisement video to charity wear.
