Bernd Goeckler debuts ‘Duetto’ at ON10
Bernd Goeckler debuts ‘Duetto’ at ON10

On the occasion of New York’s 10th Street galleries’ annual district design event, ON10, Bernd Goeckler Gallery presented new collectible contemporary furniture by designer Robert Marinelli, as well as a collaborative body of work, “Duetto,” by Roberto Rida and Simone Crestani, two masters of contemporary Italian design. “Duetto” was championed by Bernd Goeckler’s niece Katja Hirche, who in the last few years rose to the role of gallery director and has been forging new directions to pursue programming that reflects current design dialogues. As a whole, Bernd Goeckler’s new offerings elude conventional categorization, occupying a rarified, liminal space that attempts to collapse and expand the hierarchy that sets fine art above craft, while igniting broader conversations about the sensual objects that shape and enrich our lives.  

On hand to celebrate were Thad Hayes, Alyssa Kapito, Phyllis Washington, Philip Gorrivan, DD Allen, Roric Tobin, Esteban Arboleda, Josh Greene, Alex P. White, Rajaie Khoury, Andrew Torrey, Carl D’Aquino, Lucy Bamman, Hadley Keller, Jonathan Zakarya, Mieke ten Have, Giuseppe Pica, Benjamin Vandiver, Nicole Fuller and Brock Forsblom.

“ON10 has for many years provided the dealers of East 10th Street an opportunity to showcase new bodies of work,” said Hirche. “This year at Bernd Goeckler, we introduced a new collaboration between Roberto Rida and Simone Crestani, both artists we have been working with individually for almost 20 years, as well as a curation of exciting new works by Robert Marinelli. We love creating a dialogue between vintage pieces and collectible contemporary design, and it is this passion that we share with our sophisticated clientele.”
