9 NORTH MOORE, NEW YORK, NY 10013
Ella Wesly, BFA in Art (2016) Graduate from Clemson University's Art Department is current enrolled in the Master of Arts in Art Business program at Sotheby’s Institute of Art—New York. She also has accepted an internship at Sapar Contemporary Gallery in the New York City's Tribeca neighborhood. Ella will function as the sole intern in the gallery, completing research, assisting in event planning, and continuing her dedication to a career in the art market.
SAPAR Contemporary Gallery + Incubator is the brainchild of Raushan Sapar and Nina Levent. The project that has been in the works since 2014 while we were looking for a space that was in line with our vision. The gallery has finally acquired a ground floor space at 9 North Moore Street and renovated this older traditional Tribeca space into a modern sunlit gallery space that respects the architectural legacy of the neighborhood and retains its original charm.
SAPAR Contemporary artists span three generations and five continents. They engage in global conversations and develop vocabularies that resonate as strongly in Baku, Almaty and Istanbul as they do in New York, Berlin, Paris and Mexico City. Their artistic practices vary from meditative traditional ink painting to writing programming code; what connects them are the artists’ capacity for empathy, insight, and imagination, their whimsy and generosity of spirit, as well as the rigor and depth of their studio practice.
SAPAR Contemporary has also launched a nomadic incubator program. The Incubator program, residencies and group shows offer a unique lens that is immediate and global, future-oriented and accessible, multi-sensory and immersive. The gallery program brings together visual artists and creative minds of all disciplines: scientists, engineers, architects, performers, musicians and perfumers.
SAPAR Contemporary artists’ works have been featured in international Biennials and are included in private and public collections around the world; among them are the MoMA, LaCMA, Tate Modern, Centre Pompidou, the Smithsonian and many others.
SAPAR Contemporary commissions works that are site-specific to New York, but infused with sensibilities, materialities and traditions of the artists’ backgrounds.
The Gallery does not accept unsolicited portfolios.
