18 July - Stephan Stoyanov and the larger art world

LAUNCHPROJECTS - This weekend we met with Stephan Stoyanov of Stephan Stoyanov Gallery (formerly Gallery Luxe) located on Orchard Street on the Lower East Side. He was in Santa Fe for the weekend and immediately connected with Clayton Porter's work both in the gallery and in the studio. Predominantly interested in video art, he was immediately taken with the video installation "Mouths Have no Gender" (video still pictured above). It is a provocative and luscious video that I debuted as the Curator of the Center for Contemporary Arts. Stoyanov will introduce this video and Porter's works on paper at his gallery in the coming months - a critical step for Porter's career. We are in discussions with Stoyanov about accompanying his gallery to Art-o-rama in Marseilles in September, co-curating a show in New York in October, visiting NADA art fair in December (in conjunction with Art Basel Miami Beach) and attending Art Brussels in April. This man has an interminable amount of energy and it looks like we are coming along for the ride...so stay tuned.
