press release

Opening: 18 May 2007, Friday, 7-10 pm

Artnews Projects is happy to present in Berlin the interactive curatorial project 'Pierogi Flatfiling'.

In addition to a regular schedule of solo exhibitions of work by emerging and mid-career artists in the Brooklyn and Leipzig galleries, Pierogi has developed the renowned and peripatetic Flat Files which house portfolios of original artworks.The flatfiles represents a wide cross section of contemporary artists working primarily in the US and Europe. The artwork in the files is constantly updated by reviewing submitted work and by invitation.

These artists' files were chosen primarily from the existing files in Brooklyn and Leipzig. A number of additional artists will be curated into the show from Berlin and elsewhere before and throughout this exhibition. Altogether there will be about 100 portfolios on view in the files.

One wall of the gallery will have a salon style hanging of artwork selected from the portfolios. There will also be a curated selection of larger works that will complement the artworks in the files. This project is not just a presentation of established artists, and is not a 'who's-who' of the art world; it includes emerging, mid-career, and established artists.

Access and participation, on the part of both artists and viewers, is the central idea of the Flat Files. One of the goals is to demystify the art viewing process by allowing people to view a large and eclectic group of original artworks in portfolios. The viewer becomes a participant in this interactive curatorial project, in effect relying on their confidence and discretion.

Artnews Projects is the exhibition space of the internet platform It introduces a range of young positions from other cities and countries, which are invited to present their work in Berlin. The exhibition program focuses on diverse experimental practices that are estranged from their usual context and set up in a new environment.
