Over the weekend, we went to an art show in an unlikely place: a one-bedroom apartment. Bill Gross is the mind behind 65 Grand, a West Town living space that features rotating shows. When he hosts an exhibition, Bill moves everything out of the kitchen and front room and hides it behind a wall, transforming his home into a blank canvas for emerging artists...
In the kitchen, a temporary countertop covers the stove and creates a surface for postcards and takeaway materials. Painted slate blue floors contrast with white walls, creating a clean backdrop for artworks. Although small, the apartment is a welcoming space that provides a nice counterpoint to traditional art galleries and gives artists a chance to exhibit their works in an unconventional environment.
The show, Post Scarcity
, is curated by Thea Liberty Nichols
and includes performance art and sculptural works by Eliza Fernand
, Monica Herrera
, and Jodie Mack
