See Saw Map Is A Free NYC Gallery Guide App

See Saw Map

I was in Chelsea this weekend and came across Ellen who with her brother Patrick started the See Saw Map app for iOS. It's a gallery guide app for NYC galleries and their openings.

Until now I've been using Artforum's Artguide app, but that costs $2.99 and is still under the Skeuomorphic design of iOS6. See Saw Map is much cleaner and straightforward to use. At the moment it covers Manhattan and Brooklyn, but they are looking to expand to LA and beyond in the future. The app is free, so check it out; I think you'll like it. [iTunes]

Below are the features of the App:

• Search for artists and galleries, or browse by neighborhood.

• View and submit exhibition images.

• Always have the latest exhibition information and press releases handy. Even off-line in the subway.

• Track openings and shows that are closing soon so you’ll never miss an important exhibition. Plus: hours, website, and contact information for each gallery.

• Share exhibitions with friends via email, text, and social media.

• Check out the Editor’s Picks for popular exhibitions, under-the-radar recommendations, and critically acclaimed shows.

The 'Underground' Arts Scene


The Guardian:

Before the digital revolution, experimental subcultures were far more hidden from view. Today they’re more accessible than ever – with consequences for artists and audiences


The internet has been wonderful for liberating alternative art forms and under-represented artists and their audiences from the gatekeepers of culture. But the problem with the internet is that the underground arts scene – that safe space where risk, dissent and difference are possible – is now only a click away. I’m curious about why these people clicked on those events and whether they asked themselves if what they had found really was for them. And if they did, what on earth were they thinking by attending if it wasn’t?

Interview: Brice Marden

BRICE: That's what I said at that symposium to Yve-Alain Bois: "You've got to avoid the cheap shot." He said, "What's the cheap shot?" I said, "That thing that's a little too easy to do. You've got to avoid that."
