Verbier 3-D Artists In Conversation at Frieze
ARTISTS IN CONVERSATION:
PRVT VW (PRIVATE VIEW) SOHO + VERBIER 3-D FOUNDATION
In celebration of Frieze week, we welcome PRVT VW (Private View) SoHo and Verbier 3-D Foundation for an artist talk in partnership with ONDA. The conversation will feature current and past artist-in-residents and focus on their experiences in the Swiss Alps.
The artists included in this panel discussion are James Capper, Chloe Dewe Mathews and Andrea Hasler. This talk is being moderated by independent curator Tamar Clarke-Brown.
Verbier 3-D Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to creating contemporary art to promote environmentalism, education, and culture to local and international audiences. Founded in 2010 by New York-based artist Madeleine Paternot and Verbier-based artist Kiki Thompson, the foundation creates an educational and cultural Artist Residency inspired by the stunning Alpine environment of Verbier, Switzerland at an altitude of 2,300 meters between La Chaux and Ruinettes. More than one million visitors to Verbier can access the park for free year- round. Participating artists have included Zak Ové, Olaf Breuning, Tarik Hayward, Onyedika Chuke, Gregory Coates and Will Ryman.
In 2016, the Verbier 3-D Foundation launched a 5-year initiative that unites artists, locals and scientists to chronicle the impact of the surrounding glacial environment co-curated by Paul Goodwin and Alexa Jeanne Kusber. Their insights will be captured in photography, sculpture and multi-media residencies, alongside research, exhibitions and education programmes for audiences of all ages.
In 2018, Verbier 3-D Foundation announced their first artist residency program in New York City, Time + Space, a new collaboration with PRVT VW (Private View) SoHo. Set in the heart of the SoHo artist district in an authentic old school loft, this invitation-only, in-house residency program is geared towards providing artists and curators “time + space” to further develop their practices in a dynamic urban environment. The aim is to develop a dialogue between the diverse residency locations of New York and Verbier that both challenge and expand participating artists’ practices in relation to place.
PRVT VW is located at 66 Crosby Street, #5F, in the heart of SoHo, NYC. Set in an old-school loft, it is a multi-discipline outpost for exhibitions, lectures, showcases, and special projects. This gallery provides a new type of program platform that encourages social engagement and experimentation within contemporary art and tangential practices by partnering with an international community of artists, galleries, institutions and residencies.
