Live Culture 48: New Again
February 23, from 11-12 noon
Listen on 
WPKN 89.5 FM, at WPKN.org
and as a podcast on

This Month on Live Culture I will revisit two artist-run institutions going strong and brave in a difficult art economy: ODETTA Gallery and the Ely Center for Cortemporary Art.

The first guest is artist/gallerist Ellen Hackl Fagan about her art gallery ODETTA in Brooklyn, NY,  which is now opening a second location in Chelsea. Originally conceived as a short-term project, ODETTA has had many successful exhibits, participated in major art fairs, and is now onto a new iteration, partnering with 1st Dibs, as they open a brick and mortar flagship location in NYC. Bridging the online marketplace with contemporary gallery installation practices, Fagan seeks to broaden the gallery's audience to include designers, collectors, advertising agencies, and artists in one of the fastest growing developments in the city, at the intersection of Hudson Yards and the top of the High Line, one of the most frequented tourist destinations in Manhattan. For her first exhibit as a part of this venture, Ellen offers Bebop featuring art by Nancy Baker andRichard Bottwin, whose works are at once in contrast to one another, angular Bauhaus forms in wood playing  against organic, Baroque collages on paper.

Please join us for the upcoming opening receptions to our newest exhibitions!
