OSMOS was co-founded in 1997 as a project space in Berlin. In 2013, OSMOS was re-launched by Cay Sophie Rabinowitz in New York and has since developed into a fully integrated concept for curatorial and editorial activities.
OSMOS currently has two locations: OSMOS Address, in a Manhattan, East Village storefront that was once a saloon frequented by Emma Goldman, and OSMOS Station, in a purpose-built garage next to the former train depot of the Catskill village of Stamford, New York.
OSMOS is composed of multiple operational components: OSMOS Address (project space and editorial office); OSMOS Magazine and OSMOS Books, OSMOS Station (artist residence and studio) and managing artist’s estates.
OSMOS has solidified its recognition by supporting emerging artists through exhibitions with Baseera Khan, Robert Russell, Corentin Grossmann, Elvire Bonduelle, Honza Zamojski, and Mathieu Mercier alongside its solo exhibitions with pioneers such as Peter Roehr, Duane Michals, Anton Stankowski, Sibylle Bergmann, and Martin Kippenberger; as well as publishing the first monographs of Marcelo Krasilcic, Nilbar Gures, Kon Trubkovich, Wardell Milan, Eileen Quinlan, Leslie Hewitt, and Bev Grant. OSMOS has also represented the Estates of Gretchen Bender and Darrel Ellis, among others.
