This event has ended.

For their Art in General New Commission, The Still House Group (an emerging artist-run organization based in Brooklyn) presents +1, a new artist-run space in the heart of Chinatown. Housed in a storefront space under the Manhattan Bridge, +1 will present a series of exhibitions by The Still House Group’s permanent roster of eight artists: Alex Perweiler, Isaac Brest, Zachary Susskind, Louis Eisner, Jack Greer, Brendan Lynch, Dylan Lynch, and Nick Darmstaedter. Each exhibition will be a solo presentation with a plus one – the addition of another artwork, object, or artist to the space. Building on Art in General’s own history as an artist-run alternative space, +1 is a new platform for The Still House Group to present unconventional work and exchange ideas.

+1 is located on the west side of Forsyth between Division and East Broadway. Exhibitions can be seen 24/7 through the window or by appointment. For more information, please contact jon@artingeneral.org.
