In the Gallery

Our Gallery is a rousing social laboratory for diverse ideas and practices. Monthly exhibits and pop-ups showcase emerging artists while shining a spotlight on pioneering concepts and social trends. We challenge the expectations of a traditional white-wall gallery by nurturing diversity, maintaining flexibility, and facilitating cross-contamination of ideas and disciplines.
