How would you describe the work your gallery specializes in?
When I opened the East Hampton warehouse in 2005, I got together with a few artists that are set up in the area, which helped develop the Summer 2006 program. With a core group of regional talent, the warehouse has also exhibited Lawrence Weiner, a Middle Eastern video showcase, a group show on "Sex & Sensuality" that included Ghada Amer, Cecily Brown, Will Cotton, Eric Fischl, Billy Sullivan, a Scope-Hamptons film screening of "Stereomongrel" by Luis Gispert, a group show curated by Alice Aycock. Summer 2010 will comprise an exhibition of Billy Sullivan photographs, a group show curated with Beth De Woody tittled "Hunt & Chase", and an architectural show by Maziar Behrooz. Salomon Contemporary, with an eye on past, present, and future, specializes in progressive ideas from the East End and beyond. inspired by 112 Greene Street, among others.
