Former PS1 Curator Tim Goossens Joins Lower East Side Gallery envoy enterprises

Tim Goossens, the Belgian-born former assistant curator at MoMA PS1 — back when it was just “PS1″ — and fordProject, has just joined Lower East Side gallery envoy enterprises as its curatorial director. He’ll continue to be a man of many hats, however: he’s also curating a project at the upcoming Berlin Biennale and organizing an exhibition of works by artist Stephen Posen that opens next week in Gramercy.

Down on Chrystie Street, Goossens will be working alongside envoy director Jimi Dams on upcoming programming initiatives, and developing projects with current and future gallery artists.

He’ll be busy elsewhere this month, though. On April 17 the exhibition of new photographs by Stephen Posen that he co-organized with Chelsea gallery Churner and Churner will open at the Residencies at Gramercy Park Hotel (50 Gramercy Park North, through May 31). The show features some 20 photos from the artist’s extensive oeuvre, focusing mainly on his work from the last decade, arranged in pairs according to various thematic or chronological resonances.

Later this month Goossens will open “Larger Than Love,” an exhibition of works by Shony Rivnay and Linday Compton on the Art Campus at the Hamburger Bahnhof Halle am Wasser, Kunst-Campus, as part of the Berlin Biennale’s VIP programming. The exhibition, which opens April 25 and continues through May 12, will feature Rivnay’s enormous, handwriting-covered inflatable installation “Ehevuni” and, Compton’s environmental sound piece “Preset.”

Meanwhile, envoy enterprises opens a new exhibition of works by Alex Rose tomorrow.
