Independent 2015

Friday, March 6th, 2015

This year’s Independent features 50 galleries from 14 countries, an impressive globe-to-gallery ratio, though New York and Berlin dominate.

In the architectural design by Jonathan Caplan, galleries unfold around visitors roaming between angled dividing walls. The space seems to swirl visual surprises while commingling neighboring galleries, though it does cram some artists into awkward corners.  This porous zoning could be a way to arrange marriages between certain galleries, or just a way to induce curiosity and conversations.  And to preserve the memories, Mousse will publish a limited-edition catalog.

Along with the international expanse of Independent, there’s a high density of cool art.  Harald Bender at Galerie Susanne Zander, Lionel Maunz at Bureau, Mike Cloud at Thomas Erben, and Birdie Lusch are some standouts.  Here are some more of the best-in-show at Independent.  See more pics on our Instagram.
