Beyond the White Box: an interview with Catherine Testorf, Founder and Director of InSight Artspace

Sunday, October 20th, 2019

Catherine Testorf is Founder and Director of InSight Artspace, a Westchester-based interactive art business established in 2018. She was previously Co-Founder of Sohotel Artspace Gallery, where she introduced international practitioners to the New York art scene. Catherine founded the business after 10 years in Switzerland’s financial industry, where she grew to appreciate art not only as an investment but also as a bridge to cultures around the world. www.insightartspace.com

InSight Artspace was founded on the mission of foregrounding the personal journeys of contemporary artists while fostering a creative and intimate dialogue around their work. The business primarily represents women artists. Bringing together practitioners, collectors and visitors, the business prides itself in ensuring accessibility to art to people from all walks of life. With bold choices to showcase at pop-up fairs and alternate venues such as restaurants and spas, InSight Artspace aims to stimulate new conversations and promote art as an essential component of life. 

Stephanie Yeap spoke with Catherine via video call between London and New York City…

  1. 1. Describe your business in 5 words:

The phrase “outside the white box format” really corresponds to what I currently do at InSight Artspace, my interactive gallery. And what I mean by the white box is the traditional gallery model that never changes. I believe people have to see art in different perspectives in order to enrich their lives and you can’t achieve that with the same old format.

Highlights of the first installation opening in September include early altered Polaroids by Feminist Artist, Mary Beth Edelson; new works in glass, paper and reclaimed materials by Nancy Cohen; “hairquilts” from the 1970’s by A.I.R.

ODETTA presents Joanne Mattera’s From Dawn to Dusk & Steven Baris in the Flat Files

Thursday, October 10th, 2019

ODETTA is pleased to present From Dawn to Dusk – October 15 – November 16, 2019 at the 1st Dibs Gallery.

The exhibit intimates the course of light’s changes through a day in Joanne Mattera’s encaustic paintings, developed both from the artist’s imagination and from years of observing color in nature.

From morning’s first light, with traces of pinks and violets, into blues, greens, high noon’s purest yellows and reds, and receding into twilight’s violets and flashes of oranges with the sun’s final sizzle at the end of the day, we share an awareness of color’s ability to guide us through time.
