"The most basic function of the arts is to be relevant in the advancement of society.

Galapagos does not accept government grants or public funding of any kind. We believe that if the work we present is strong, communicative, and effective, we will survive.

This is New York City. One of the greatest cultural cities to ever have risen; perhaps the greatest. As cultural leaders in New York we can’t simply be placeholders, bystanders in the midst of what others before us have built - we have to lead.

We know that our model isn’t necessarily adaptable to other artistic endeavors. While we’re consistently proving a model appropriate for the performing arts we don’t pretend to have a solution appropriate to painters or sculptors or small dance companies. We’re working on that. In the meantime we do have an idea for theater.

We have our whole lives to live and that is terribly important. Culture – and y/our experience of and within it - should reflect that clearly."
-Robert Elmes, Director, Galapagos Art Space
