Broadway 1602 - NYC, U.S.A.
Broadway 1602 opened its doors in the summer of 2005 by German curator and art critic Anke Kempkes. This gallery is off the beaten path and away from the obvious gallery openings in the city. It was first installed on Broadway between 28th and 29th in NYC, since 2010 the gallery moved to the 3rd floor of the historical 'Baoudouine Building' at 1181 Broadway between 27th and 28th Street.
Representations of an international casts of emerging artists are celebrated here from cities such as New York, Warsaw, Berlin and London. Expect curated projects, co-operations with other galleries, paintings, media performances, paintings and film. Since 2006, it has been star struck with the involvement of NYC-based French photographer and filmmaker Babette Mangolte making a move in Broadway 1602. As of 2010, the gallery began working with the estate of first generation Bauhaus artist Xanti Schawinsky, a project initiated in collaboration with independent curator Larry List.
Broadway 1602 founder Anke Kempkes has a long history of curatorial works. She was an art critic for international art magazines and publications as well as an independent curator in Berlin, Germany. A must mention is her 2003 involvement in the Martin Kippernberger Estate at Galerie Gisela Capitain, in Cologne. She organised and directed it with a round of acknowledgement in the profession. In 2004, Anke held the position of Curator at Kunsthalle Basel where she gained momentum with the exhibition 'Flesh at War with Enigma'.
