Art Galleries In New York: Sundaram
For multicultural art, especially Central and East Asian works, Sundaram Tagore Gallery in Chelsea is the preeminent space in Manhattan. Established in 2000, the gallery says its mission is to open the exchange of ideas between Western and non-Western cultures:
In a world where communication is instant and cultures are colliding and melding as never before, our goal is to provide a venue for art that transcends boundaries of all sorts.
Sounds like the artistic equivalent of Times columnist Tom Friedman's book The World Is Flat; art, like everything else, is getting globalized. So does this mean we'll be able to buy cut-rate knockoffs of the art from a guy in a trenchcoat a few blocks away in Chinatown?
