Tarik Currimbhoy’s ‘Sway’ at Long-Sharp Gallery, New York

Long-Sharp Gallery will host the first solo exhibition for represented artist Tarik Currimbhoy. Titled “Sway,” the exhibit will open in New York on May 30, 2018, and will feature over a dozen works by the artist. In these works, Currimbhoy’s kinetic stainless and bronze sculptures combine a wealth of expertise and experience that has been culled from a successful career as a designer and architect.   

Tarik Currimbhoy was born and raised in India and traveled to the United States to study in the early 1970s. After getting a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree and a Master of Architecture degree from the Pratt Institute and a Master of Arts degree from Cornell University, he returned to teach at both institutions (Drawing at Cornell and Industrial Design at Pratt).

“Currimbhoy has been blurring the lines of architecture and art – it is evident that his intent to create spaces that were ‘timeless… tranquil, simple, and tactile, with a purity of form and material” was a tenet that he carried over into his sculpture,’” said the gallery.

Currimbhoy thinks of New York as home, a place he shares with his wife and the New York Times best-selling author Nayana Currimbhoy.

Long-Sharp was recently named one of the top 500 galleries in the world by Blouin ArtInfo Modern Painters. Long-Sharp Fine Art Gallery is located in the Conrad Indianapolis luxury hotel. The gallery features works from “Picasso to Pop,” with a primary focus on works by some of the best-known names in modern and contemporary art. These include the works of Picasso, Warhol, Basquiat, Haring, Frankenthaler, Indiana, Lichtenstein, Miro, and Motherwell. The gallery has works by a host of nationally and internationally recognized contemporary artists including Chris Bracey, Gino Miles, David Spiller, Russell Young, David Datuna, David Kramer, Wayne Warren, Constance Edwards Scopelitis, Mary Pat Wallen, Jason Myers, Dale Enochs, and William John Kennedy.

The exhibition will be on view from May 30 through June 30, 2018, at Long-Sharp Gallery Project Space, 24 West 57th Street, Suite 606, New York, NY, 10019 United States.
