Vanguard Visions @ Cspace

Cspace was a special program located in the Atrium of Citicorp Center in Midtown Manhattan. The Atrium is a public space surrounded by 3 levels of retail stores. Vanguard Visions produced a year-long series of vanguard artists whose work with multimedia performance, installations and new technologies offered the public an awareness of work transforming the relationship between art, culture and the public. The name Cspace was created as a way to identify the space . . . Citicorp space, cyberspace, creative space and community space. Conceptually, Cspace was the intersection of artistic, public and commercial space. Vanguard Visions’ relationship with Citicorp’s atrium offered unique possibilities for shifting the paradigm of what we consider to be public art.


The series focused on Multimedia Performances, Sonic Art Installations, Video Installations, a Vanguard Lecture Series.


Artists whose work was selected for performance and exhibition in 1998 included: Ken Butler, Chrysanne Stathacos in association with Creative Time Inc. and Lombard/Fried Gallery, WE (DJ Olive, Lloop, Once 11), Van McElwee in association with Hugo de Pagano Gallery, David Gamper and Straylight (Jason Finkelman, Geoff Gersh, Charles Cohen).
