Ortuzar Projects, the project space that opened in the Tribeca neighborhood of Manhattan in February 2018, announced today that Polina Berlin has been named director. Berlin currently works as a sales associate at Paula Cooper gallery. Previously, she worked for Kasmin for five years as well as in the post-war and contemporary art department at Christie’s.
In her new role, Berlin will work closely with Ortuzar Projects founder Ales Ortuzar on the gallery’s program, which is dedicated to promoting twentieth and twenty-first-century artists who are underrecognized in the United States. Past exhibitions staged by the space include solo shows of Michel Parmentier, Peter Roehr, Raul Guerrero, Maruja Mallo, David Robilliard, and Gilles Aillaud, which is on view through May 11. Berlin will also focus on secondary market sales.
“I am delighted to join the team at Ortuzar Projects,”Berlin said in a statement. “I’ve admired the thoughtfulness and rigor of the program, along with Ales’s tremendous integrity as a dealer and gallerist. It’s exciting to be able to contribute to the gallery’s growth and to be part of the burgeoning downtown gallery community.”
