On a recent visit to A Gathering of the Tribes gallery, I was struck by the number of young artists and their friends filling the East Village space, known as a gathering spot for poets, writers and artists since 1993. I had not been there in several years, so the surprise came along with the realization that the space is changing with the neighborhood. Somehow, though, it still feels like the old East Village, even if from 5 years ago. Here are a few shots from the opening of the exhibition rightly called “At Home.”

Entering the building, just one flight of stairs separates the event poster plastered on the wall from the institution that has been welcoming poets, writers, artists and musicians since the early 1990s.

Right through the door, the man who in 1991 ''converted a portion of his apartment into an informal salon.''
