Denmark Native and Gallerist , Lillan Munch announced the anticipated opening on January 22nd of Munch Gallery at 245 Broome Street, New York. This renovated contemporary art gallery will showcase international artists from Europe and the United States. Ms. Munch, owner of the former Pi Gallery in Copenhagen and seasoned graphic designer, will exhibit an international collection of profound contemporary work.
Munch has developed an extensive knowledge of vital artist communities during her tenor as a gallery owner in Copenhagen. With a particular emphasis on the distinctive styles emerging from Denmark’s thriving art community, the cumulative work of her selected artists depicts the rapidly evolving epicenters of vibrant art movements on two continents through transformative images.
Munch has scheduled a regional artist’s opening for Saturday January 22, 2011, combining efforts with Try State Magazine, the popular, alternative art and photography magazine and Harder Candy Productions, an entertainment company featuring burlesque performances.
The January 22nd launch party will feature a free “Go-Go-Boy” life drawing class for artists from 6:00PM-7:30PM, followed by a reception to preview the newest issue of Try State Magazine. Photographs from the third issue will be exhibited but not for sale, however, patrons will be able to write on the 16” x 20” photos and express their reactions to the images, which will then be returned to the artists. Many of the artists featured in Try State will be in attendance and copies of the magazine will be available for purchase.
Try State Magazine has become the “working bible” for emerging artists and is highly popular with collectors, gallery owners, museum staff, stylists, decorators and nightlife celebutantes. Harder Candy Productions is New York’s newest party-scene planner. Munch’s decision to collaborate with these companies shows her dedication to creating a new and exciting atmosphere / venue to the lower east side of Manhattan.
Other artists include, Yves De Brabander, The Belgian founder of Photoaddict, and Claus Carstensen, a Copenhagen artist and former professor at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts.
