Gotham West is a luxury residential building in The New York City neighborhood of Hell’s Kitchen. It features several high-end amenities for residents, including a curated rotating art exhibition. Art Assets has curated numerous exhibitions there, including the artists David Storey, Torkil Gudnason, Riitta Ikonen, and Jennifer Riley.
The art space is a 45-foot long wall in a large lounge that features cushy seating, work tables, and a glass-enclosed fire pit. It’s a space for residents to relax, get some work done, or socialize. The gallery wall is surrounded by seats that invite quiet contemplation of the art.
For Gotham’s rotating exhibitions, Art Assets carefully considers the resident makeup, the lounge setting, and the visceral feeling the art evokes. Gotham West is home to individuals and many families with children, so the art must appeal to a variety of tastes and ages and avoid controversial content or nudity.
