About

Art Projects International is delighted to celebrate the gallery’s 30-year anniversary with a special exhibition 30 Years: Art Projects International opening March 10, 2023. The exhibition reflects on Art Projects International’s history by highlighting the many artists, exhibitions, and people that have been part of the gallery’s story over the past three decades—from the early years in Soho, with the gallery introducing and providing a platform for artists of diverse international backgrounds, to charting its own path with its move to Tribeca in 1998. The gallery’s founder and director Jung Lee Sanders’ background of living and working in different parts of the world and multi-allegiance to various cultures and world views have been a source of inspiration and guidance for both the gallery and its artists. Since its founding in 1993, the gallery has presented and organized over 150 exhibitions and featured works by more than eighty artists from around the world. Art Projects International is one of the few galleries founded in New York in the 1990s to focus on contemporary artists from Asia and its diaspora; it has played an important role in bringing to light the stories of significant yet under-acknowledged artists. From its inception, the gallery’s program has been engaged in the presentation of art that should be understood as belonging to the center, as opposed to the periphery, of contemporary art discourse. And the gallery’s long term support of distinctive talents has resulted in the increased inclusion and visibility of their works, many of which have since become part of a living art history and are present in prominent museums and collections around the world. This anniversary exhibition brings together a selection of exemplary works and new works by an intergenerational group of international artists. With works spanning more than three decades and with a selection of rare archival materials, the exhibition will highlight significant works from important exhibitions at Art Projects International, as well as those placed in collections of note or shown in museum and institutional exhibitions. Also highlighted are important collaborative ventures, group shows, and many previously unpublished photographs of people who have been part of this extraordinary journey.
