RadiatorArts (Radical Mediator for the Arts) is a recently opened venue in Long Island City that gives space to artist studios and to Radiator Gallery.
The gallery provides local and international emerging and mid-career curators and artist-curators an excellent opportunity to work with and learn about the operations of a multi-disciplinary organization. Radiator will regularly present contemporary art exhibitions, performances and video programs. Each curator is expected to work cooperatively, be flexible, self-motivated, and interested in contributing to the ongoing needs of this active multi-arts center.

Tamas Veszi is a multimedia artist with an academic background in painting. He is the founder of RadiatorArts – Radical Mediator for the Arts. With these directorial and curatorial projects, Veszi is seeking a departure from the standards of our industry to set content back at the center of debates and invigorate cooperativeness. His activities as a community initiator bridge a gap between his restless interest for the questions of embodiment and formlessness. Veszi has exhibited his work internationally in Canada, Hungary, England, Germany, France, Austria, Italy and throughout the United States. As RadiatorArts’ director, Veszi has collaborated with the Embassy of Israel, Art Market Budapest, and organized international exchanges with La Couleuvre Art Center in Paris (France) and Bäcker Strasse 4 Gallery in Vienna (Austria). Tamas Veszi lives and works in New York.
