Even as young, edgier galleries gravitate to the less corporate parts of New York City, some can still be found in Midtown, clustered amongst the neighborhood’s blue chip spaces. Last night, one such venue, The Project, coexisting quite peacefully on 57th Street, held its summer group show opening reception, titled “The Left Hand of Darkness.”

Artists on view include: Michael Bilsborough, Monica Bonvicini, C.R.E.E.P., Lizzie Fitch, Kathryn Garcia, Matt Greene, Paul Kopkau, Sarah Lucas, Tara Mateik, Slava Mogutin, Michael Portnoy, Tracey Rose, Ryan Trecartin, Matthias Vriens and Tobaron Waxman.

Entering The Project.

The Project's office is unusually open, and all gallery guests need to go through it in order to reach the exhibition space.

A large gallery follows with the first works.

A photo in the show.

A large installation with a baby carriage, which at least one guest took for a beer cup receptacle.

A few guests to the gallery chatting in front of a very intensely colored canvas.


A massive wall drawing in the very back of the gallery.

The evening ended at another location, a bar with pizza and a flamboyant live music performance.
