Kasmin is delighted to announce the launch of Kasmin/Verso, a new multimedia editorial series that aims to offer a deeper insight into the work and practice of the gallery artists.
Encompassing in-depth artist interviews, behind-the-scenes access to studios, presentations of new work, previously unseen archival materials, and weekly online film screenings, the series will reflect the gallery’s diverse program—placing historic figures of Post-War art in dialogue with the evolving practice of both emerging and established artists working today.
Ongoing from early May, Kasmin/Verso will present a weekly online screening of film work by artists such as Tina Barney, Barry Flanagan, and James Nares; send Weekend Long Reads newsletters featuring archival catalog essays on artists including Alma Allen, Jane Freilicher, Lee Krasner, Elliott Puckette, and Bernar Venet; and broadcast IGTV studio visits with Ali Banisadr, Saint Clair Cemin, Matvey Levenstein, Bosco Sodi, and Naama Tsabar, among others.
Commencing the screening series is a triple bill of works by James Nares, all of which use the backdrop of New York City as their stage. Pendulum (1976), Globe (2007), and STREET (2011) will air consecutively over three weekends from May 8 to May 24 at kasmingallery.com. Whether densely populated or hauntingly desolate, New York establishes itself again and again as the complex and compelling setting of these groundbreaking works, made all the more poignant by the current, unprecedented emptiness of the city streets. This is the first time that the three works—which went on view as part of the artist’s 2019 retrospective at the Milwaukee Art Museum—have been made available for viewing online.
