“Time Equities Inc. (TEI) is committed to enriching the experience of our properties through the Art-in-Buildings Program, an innovative approach that brings contemporary art by emerging and mid-career artists to non-traditional exhibition spaces in the interest of promoting artists, expanding the audience for art, and creating a more interesting environment for our building occupants, residents, and their guests.
TEI founded Art-in-Buildings (AiB) in 2000 at the Maiden Lane Exhibition Space at 125 Maiden Lane. The inaugural exhibition was Up in the Trees by Barbara Andrus. The early exhibition history at 125 Maiden Lane includes exhibitions of work by Steven Siegel, Jon Isherwood, Todd McGrain, Alain Kirili, John Cross, and a survey of Sol LeWitt’s sculptural maquettes, among others. From this auspicious beginning, AiB has expanded to include rotating exhibitions and permanent installations at numerous sites in New York City and beyond. Our spaces range from atriums and lobbies to a small street-level window and a fully-equipped white cube gallery space. This variety of exhibition spaces poses numerous site-responsive challenges and opportunities for experimentation by our collaborators. Recently, we’ve inaugurated projects in Montreal, Toronto, and outside Detroit, where we strive to connect with artists from the thriving local art scenes. Art-in-Buildings is curated by Jennie Lamensdorf.” (https://teiartinbuildings.com/about)
