Bortolami Gallery christened its new expanded Chelsea space last night with the opening (and after-party) of 'Re-dressing,' a show devoted to work by a large group of artists, including Nate Lowman, Dan Colen, Hanna Liden, Terence Koh, Jack Pierson, David Salle, and Emily Sundblad. The uniting factor across the works was not immediately apparent, but the scope was completely energizing. As the night wore on, a sense of release was palpable: wine was spilled, the music got louder, and Bojan Sarcevic's Untitled pull up bar was pulled up on several times. Many of the artists exhibited were around, mixed with some refugees from the Proenza Schouler show across the street, relaxing and letting go after a week of (let's be honest) too much fashion.
The new space is at 520 West 20th St.
'Re-Dressing' is on show until November 6th.
