PULSE Contemporary Art Fairs presents PULSE New York 2013, May 9–12, at the Metropolitan Pavilion in New York City.  Marking its eighth New York edition, PULSE New York will present 62 national and international galleries exhibiting a blend of emerging and established artists working in all media from photography, painting, and sculpture to performance, installation, and video art.

“The number of outstanding international galleries continues to be one of the fair’s strengths, making PULSE New York 2013 the strongest fair to date. A testament to PULSE’s impact and appeal is that eight of the 13 galleries exhibiting in IMPULSE—our section dedicated to galleries presenting solo artist projects—are all drawn from separate countries outside of the U.S.,” comments Cornell DeWitt, Director.

IMPULSE artists are eligible to receive the PULSE Prize, a monetary grant that is awarded to an emerging artist of distinction, selected by the PULSE Gallery Selection Committee and other distinguished jurors. The PULSE New York 2013 jury members include Lowery Stokes Sims, Curator at the Museum of Art and Design; collector and arts patron Sue Stoffel; and Editor of Hyperallergic, Hrag Vartanian. The prize winner will be announced on Friday, May 10th.

The impact of international galleries is seen in the main section of PULSE New York. Galerie Wittenbrink (Munich) has returned to New York, after several years away from the art fair circuit, with paintings by emerging artists Koen Vermeule, Aylin Langreuter, and Florian Thomas. The gallery noted that PULSE’s international platform was key to introducing these artists to a broader audience.  Also from Munich, Galerie Andreas Binder will present new paintings by Matthias Meyer, and young artist Anna Navasardian, in addition to Yigal Ozeri’s oil-on-paper works, and photographs by Dieter Rehm and Philipp Lachenmann; Tokyo Gallery+BTAP (Tokyo/Beijing)—the first contemporary art gallery in Tokyo, founded in 1950, and last exhibiting at PULSE in 2010—is returning to PULSE New York, showcasing the works of acclaimed Japanese artist Yoshio Murakami, alongside the work of emerging artist Miki Taira; Galerie Stefan Roepke (Cologne/Madrid), exhibiting with PULSE since its earliest days, will curate its booth around abstraction with a mix of young, mid-career, and historical artists including Jason Gringler, Jordi Alcaraz, and Eduardo Chillida; Nieves Fernández (Madrid) will bring large drawings by Chiharu Shiota, which were originally made for a retrospective at Casa Asia, Danica Phelps, and Jordi Alcaraz. Additional highlights include Ali Kazma—recently selected for the Turkish Pavilion at the Venice Bienale—in the booth of C24 (New York).

International galleries also dominate IMPULSE, the portion of the fair devoted to galleries presenting solo exhibitions by emerging artists. These galleries include camara oscura galeria de arte (Madrid), presenting South African artist Johann Ryno de Wet; Identity Gallery (Hong Kong), featuring photographer Kurt Tong; OTTO ZOO (Milan) showing Dutch artist Marjolijn De Wit, whose collage work explores man’s impact on nature; and Art Mûr (Montreal) dedicating its booth to the installations and miniature models of Guillaume Lachapelle.
