Rawson Projects is very excited to announce our new location in the Lower East Side at 221 Madison Street and to welcome Jessamyn Fiore as a Partner at the gallery.

The inaugural exhibition will be a solo show of new work by painter Halsey Hathaway, which will open on Sunday, September 21st from 6 to 9 pm and will continue through October 26th.

Jessamyn Fiore is a New York-based curator and writer, and the co-director of the Estate of Gordon Matta-Clark. She was the Director of Thisisnotashop, a not-for-profit gallery space in Dublin, from 2007-2010. In 2007 she co-founded The Writing Workshop, a collaborative forum for writers and artists. Exhibitions curated include 112 Greene Street: The Early Years (1970–1974) at David Zwirner in New York (2011), which led to her editing the critically acclaimed catalogue of the same name (David Zwirner and Radius Books, 2012); a second exhibition at David Zwirner in New York, Gordon Matta-Clark: Above and Below (2013); two solo exhibitions by Clive Murphy at Kling & Bang Galleri in Reykjavik, Iceland (2013) and Magnan Metz Gallery, New York (2014). At Rawson Projects she curated The Balloon, a group exhibition inspired by Donald Barthelme’s short story “The Balloon” including the work of six artists from New York, Iceland, and Ireland (2014). Her one-act play Blast from The Past, based on the writings of Robert Smithson and Gordon Matta-Clark, was recently published by the Bureau for Open Culture.

She holds a masters degree in contemporary art theory, practice, and philosophy from The National College of Art and Design, Dublin.
