GET UPDATES FROM Jeanne Greenberg Rohatyn
Jeanne Greenberg Rohatyn is a gallerist who has created a network of unique spaces, suitable for a wide variety of exhibitions. Her vision as a collector, art advisor, and independent curator has made her one of the most influential figures in contemporary art. Founded in 2002, Salon94 is a project space built within her home as an alternative to the traditional white box gallery. The “lived-in” venue has hosted critically acclaimed exhibitions by a variety of artists such as Maya Lin, Wangechi Mutu, Rashid Johnson and most recently, Betty Woodman, and Nate Lowman with Hanna Liden. Crossing boundaries, she also celebrates design, representing the Estate of Carlo Mollino and the new furniture of Rick Owens.

In September 2007 she opened Salon94 Freemans, a casual barn-like space on Freeman’s Alley in the Lower East Side, with exhibitions by artists including Marilyn Minter, Lorna Simpson, Lynda Benglis and Carter. In September 2010, Salon 94 Bowery opened with a show of Richard Prince t-shirt paintings; this double height space now features a video wall on the street front facing the Bowery, and has exhibited Laurie Simmons, Liz Cohen, and Jon Kessler among others. Salon 94 is a member of the Art Dealers Association of America (ADAA).

As an art advisor, Greenberg Rohatyn is responsible for overseeing numerous important private and public collections. She sits on the Board of White Columns, and on the Presidents Council of the DIA Foundation. Last year she was named the Chair of the Board for Performa, a non-profit organization dedicated to performance art. She also serves on the Frieze Art Fair committee. She was a featured judge on last seasons Work of Art, and now acts as outside art advisor, as well as a guest judge for season 2.

Greenberg Rohatyn is the daughter of prominent art dealer Ronnie Greenberg, and art educator Jan Greenberg. She studied art history at Vassar College and at New York University’s Institute of Fine Arts. As a student she worked for the Brooklyn Museum as the Assistant Curator of Contemporary Art, and for the Royal Academy in London as the curatorial assistant to Norman Rosenthal. In the early 1990s she became director of Jeffrey Deitch, Inc, while producing innovative satellite projects and performances that would become her signature. In 2001 she curated a 60-artist extravaganza known as Casino 2001, the first Quadriënnale for the Stedelijk Museum voor Actuale Kunst in Ghent, Belgium.

In this penultimate episode, the kids travel by train from urban New York City to the Hudson Valley town of Cold Spring. Their trip is as bland as the day's drizzle, and Cold Spring looks dreary rather than charming. Upon arrival they are given the challenge: find a subject and...

This week brought us to the street, again. In Tribeca Park, the artists became street vendors. The challenge brought into sharp focus the fine line between the street and the white walls of a gallery; context being everything. The ghost of Duchamp played chess nearby. On the street, we buy...

Work Of Art: Episode 5, An Invigorating Challenge

Reading the New York Times reorganizes my daily thoughts, and often shifts my morning's priorities. Though it does not feed my work, (like Richard Prince or Adam McEwen), I'm addicted to the obituary section. Weeks later, Steve Job's obituary remains on my desk (for inspiration?), and on Monday I spent...

While unable to get much beyond Simon's Pop definition, "Pop is sex, Pop is brash, Pop is fun," this episode, "Make It Pop," was loads of fun to watch--from the kids in the studio trying their best to define Pop, to the process of making, to teasing banter between Sucklord...

It was fun to be back, hanging with China, Bill and Jerry. The familiar non-descript offices temporarily filled with able bodies. Busy interns and earnest producers milling about, while in the judges lounge we are quickly made-up (money well spent), soon to be shepherded down to the "exhibition opening." Jerry...
