TLmag 27 Extended: New New York

How can one capture the essence of a place as geographically convoluted, culturally dense, historically layered, romantically charged and creatively vast as New York? For TLmag’s 27th print edition, and in it’s extended online pages, we decided to look past claims that the city has reached its saturation point, and in doing so, we have uncovered a constantly evolving cultural capital. We present a group of maverick architects, artists, designers, curators and collectors who have forged their own paths and are best poised to weather the storm, aware that we cannot avoid reality.

Set in an iconic Chelsea brownstone, New York’s Twenty First Gallery is a far cry from the white cube spaces that line the nearby High Line. Featuring work by top historical and contemporary European designers, gallerist Renaud Vuaillat fosters a domestic atmosphere.

In an exclusive interview with TLmag, MET Associate Curator, Modern and Contemporary Christian Larsen talks about his mandate to elevate the often marginalized domain of design through a reorganisation of a collection few are aware of. With his first exhibition Sottsass Design Radical opening at the MET Breuer this July, Larsen is set to break traditional boundaries and establish fresh curatorial solutions.
