Is this a permanent art gallery, or did the owner of the building allow some people to temporarily use this space as a gallery until it is rented?
Actually, that show has been up for at least two weeks; I went specifically to see the work of Daniel Arnold, who unfortunately did not show for the opening.
Looks like a temporary gallery (not gallery lighting) to me but I'm thrilled it's not a sports bar. My bets were on a real-estate office until I realized Icon had offices around the corner on 12th Street. This space is small due to the rear gourd floor apartment and what is left of the garden space behind the building.
Looks pretty low rent to me.
No close-ups of the undie shots? Boo.
Why are these people renting space from Icon? Don't people do their homework anymore before renting commercial spaces in the neighborhood? No one should be doing business with Shaoul, Crowman, Kushner, Jacobsen or Icon. Boycott these landlords instead of lining their pockets, while they ruin the neighborhood.
you forgot Tower
I doubt these people are renting the space. Rather than leave a retail space empty while seeking a permanent tenant, temporary installations of art are put in place to make it appear as though the space is vital and in use. My guess is that this is the situation here because there is no way someone is playing $10,000 a month to display photographs in this space, and there doesn't appear to be the office set up a real gallery would maintain for sales, etc.
Another "art" of those middling millenial talentless hipsters.
Anyone involved in the art photography world heard about this, and dismissed it as a real estate developer trying to bring attention to a vacant retail space.Nothing wrong with that, except that the real estate developer might consider hooking up with a more sophisticated scene. If you are going to go all out and give free exhibition space to attract publicity, then at least hook up with someone cool, and sophisticated, and who knows what they are doing.This show is a joke.
Didn't Dash Snow do that ten years ago?
