Monica King Contemporary’s inaugural exhibition April Marten: Frances Wasn’t a Saint (until 12 October) profiles a multidisciplinary artist who “subverts the dominant structures through performance, colour and symbolism”, Monica King says. King—who has more than 20 years of experience in the art market, including runs at Pace and Kasmin—launched her eponymous gallery to “support both emerging and established artists working in various media and from various cultural, geographical and social spheres”, she says. “Choosing Marten for our inaugural show was important as I wanted an artist who was not yet well-known in New York—to let people have one of those rare ‘aha’ moments that collectors can be fortunate enough to have in the process of discovering art and artists.” King is the latest dealer to open shop in Tribeca, a burgeoning arts hub as dealers migrate from Chelsea and art world veterans launch their own enterprises in the neighbourhood.
