Wes Anderson, Jimmy Fallon, Chloe Sevigny and Harper's Bazaar editor Glenda Bailey were spotted in the crowd that showed up for the June 27 opening of Kenny Schachter ConTEMPorary, a new 1,200-square-foot gallery at 14 Charles Lane in the West Village. The two-story building, originally an 1832 carriage house, has been completely rearchitected by famed Body Artist Vito Acconci, in what is his first New York project. The asymmetrical, deconstructivist space features a swooping, free-form video projection screen and sectioned steel-mesh walls that fold down into benches and shelves for exhibiting sculptures and architectural maquettes. This is the first permanent space for Schachter, a freelance curator who has organized perhaps 50 shows in the last 12 years. Currently on view is "Artchitecture," June 27-Aug. 10, 2002, a group show featuring works by Acconci, Frederick Kiesler and 10 other artists/architects/designers; coming up in the fall are exhibitions of Elke Krystyufek and ceramics by Mary Heilman.
