kurimanzutto is pleased to introduce the second phase of TITAN, an ongoing project series in a solitary phone booth, conceived by the artist Damián Ortega and Bree Zucker. Initially launched as a group exhibition, the TITAN project now begins a new stage, focused on a single kiosk, like a pin on a map, at the corner of Sixth Avenue and West 53rd Street in New York City. During the course of the year, six individual voices will each present a solo project, using the phone booth kiosk as they see fit.
The second solo project for this series is MIRAGES, composed of three works by David Medalla, with words by Guy Brett, for TITAN on West 53rd Street and Sixth Avenue, New York City. This project is presented in loving memory of David Medalla (1942–2020) and Guy Brett (1942– 2021). David Medalla is represented courtesy of Another Vacant Space, Berlin; and kurimanzutto, Mexico City / New York. We extend our warm gratitude, to Adam Nankervis, Daniel Kupferberg and Elmar Kaiser for their collaboration in this project.
The TITAN project takes as its premise that a gallery may exist as an open space, free for all viewers, at any hour, even in the middle of the night. It aims to open a space for experience, imagination, and dialogue during a decisive time of great potential change. Like a newspaper, or public bulletin board, the solo series of the TITAN project continues kurimanzutto´s ongoing dialogue with a broad audience in the public sphere. Since its inception in 1999, kurimanzutto has consistently promoted projects and exhibitions outside of a traditional white cube to stimulate cultural dialogue. Previous projects have included exhibitions and performances in local markets, floating gardens, parking lots and airports, alongside the recent billboard project Sonora 128, in Mexico City. TITAN marks the first citywide project by kurimanzutto in New York.
