Margaret Thatcher Projects

Margaret Thatcher Projects Since its inception in 1998, Thatcher Projects has showcased the work of emerging artists, as well as internationally recognized mid-career artists.
(57)

The program’s roster is united by a profound interest in concept, process and materials. Margaret Thatcher Projects has, since its inception in 1998, been located in the West Chelsea arts district. The gallery opened in its first space on West 20th Street. In 2002 Thatcher Projects moved to its artist-designed space on West 25th Street, the Whitehall building. In 2009 we relocated to our current h

ome, a ground floor gallery at 539 West 23rd Street. Thatcher Projects presents a mix of internationally established artists alongside promising young talent. The gallery focuses on abstract painting and process. Over our almost 20 year history, the exhibition program has broadened to encompass both abstract and figurative idioms, all united by a pivotal attention to concept. Owner/director Margaret Thatcher brings a long history of integrity and professionalism to the development of the gallery exhibition program, and to the positioning of the gallery in the art community. Throughout most of the 1980’s she served as Administrator of Dia Art Foundation, working with Dia-supported artists and the founding Board of Directors to develop the institution’s public programs, including: The Lightning Field (Walter De Maria), Chamberlain Gardens (John Chamberlain), the Dan Flavin installation at Bridgehampton, and various other projects. In the 1990’s, until opening the gallery in 1998, Ms. Thatcher curated pop-up exhibitions in private and public spaces and acted as advisor to art collectors building new contemporary collections.

Cyrilla Mozenter transforms the written word through dimensional abstraction. A multi-disciplinary artist, she uses writing, the transplantation of cutout letters, as well as letter-derived, pictogram-like shapes in her works on paper and industrial felt. The titles and words in the work often come from Gertrude Stein’s writing, creating works that are playful and absurd.

Cheonae Kim's multimedia drawings are from a body of work made in response to E.J. Bellocq's early 20th century photographs of women who worked in Storyville, New Orleans' former red-light district. Each of Kim's ovals emulate the framing of Bellocq's portrait photography, though turned on their side. Kim fills the darkness of the painted oval with light colored pencil drawings, creating floral, portal-like forms.

Omar Chacon's paintings are constructed in layers from small, colorful paint elements affixed to paper. Influenced by his Colombian heritage and experiences living in the U.S., Chacon examines the connections between individuals within large, diverse communities. He conveys this sense of vital interrelation in his paintings through compositional strategies, color placement, and chance associations.
