art.pushr visits The Proposition Gallery for a tour of their current exhibition featuring the work of Kadar Brock, Jason Gringler, & Jim Lee, and an exclusive interview with gallery director Ronald Sosinski.
Ronald Sosinski, 62, is the director of The Proposition art gallery at 2 Extra Place and an East Village resident for more than twenty years. He and his business partner, Ellen Donahue, opened E.M. Donahue Gallery for Contemporary Art on East 11th Street between Avenues A and B in 1985 and followed the art scene to SoHo in 1987 and to Chelsea in 2002, where the space was renamed The Proposition. After more than twenty years away from the East Village, Mr. Sosinski and Ms. Donahue reopened the gallery on Extra Place (First Street just off of Bowery) in 2010. In this video, Mr. Sosinski talks about The Proposition’s current show and new location.
“A Step Back into the Future” is on display from March 26 to May 1. The show features mid-20th-century furniture by James Mont, custom wallpaper by Este Lewis, and a sculpture by Mickalene Thomas.
