About

signs and symbols is a contemporary art space grounded in performance. Operating nomadically since 2012, signs and symbols presented performances in New York and internationally. Our first physical space at 102 Forsyth Street (April 2018) serves as a curatorial platform and multi-disciplinary incubator bringing together diverse mediums to stimulate dialogue and creative connections. The curatorial vision is informed and anchored by the work of three important figures — Ulay, VALIE EXPORT and Vito Acconci — and thus encompasses performance, photography and architecture, with a focus on site-specific and performative practices, with an emphasis on the body in performance, painting and other time-based media. signs and symbols’ ethos is artist-centric offering a place for experimentation and the development of new work.

The gallery is curated, programmed and directed by Mitra Khorasheh, an independent curator and educator. signs and symbols is a proud member of the New Art Dealers Alliance.

In the fall of 2020, we launched Artists & Allies Berlin, an artist-run signs and symbols outpost in a former church in Kreuzberg organized by our Berlin-based artists in collaboration with the gallery here in New York. The project space, which is an extension of our annual artists & allies program, hosts performances, artist talks, workshops and communal dinners in the outdoor courtyard, among other happenings.

We look forward to your visit.
