“The idea is to be almost like a tech start-up, and be an incubator for young artists and curators,” says 23-year-old Alex Ahn about the 4,500-square-foot gallery, TEMP, he and Ari Lipkis, also 23, are launching on September 8th in Tribeca. The pair graduated from NYU in 2011 and wasted no time launching themselves into the grown-up world of the Manhattan art market, thanks in no small part to a family friend of Ahn’s who owns the building and is willing to loan the space to the two gallerists until something more lucrative comes along. “We’ve called it TEMP because we don’t know how long we’ll have the space,” says Lipkis. The gallery hopes to focus on young, up-and-coming artists who otherwise wouldn’t be able to show their work in Manhattan. TEMP’s inaugural exhibition is called “Working on It,” a group show curated by the young gallery owners, and will be on show until October 14th. Their next show is slated to be curated by co-organizer of the Portuguese pavilion at the Venice architecture Biennale, Joao Simoes. So forget Gallery Girls, and open your hearts and wallets to these just-as-young, just-as-lucky Gallery Guys. (Photo: Angel Gate/Flickr)
