New York is a constant. A busy hum, a constant whitewashed splash of the BQE crashing like waves against my building, an ongoing conversation cutting like knives into the dialogue of the everyday. It’s always present, always knocking and intruding. Time slips past us awfully fast. Thankfully all around us people are taking notes, rewiring circuits, mapping, collecting, distributing. They are reinventing conventions, combining, and making new connections. Like the constantly moving city, they won’t stop. Our posse is getting big, and it keeps growing like the city itself.

It’s now a New Year, a new era and in each iteration, a New New York for us all to start together. Why are we all living here? Why do we continue to stick it out even though it’s expensive and space is limited? The answer is different for everyone of course but there is definitely strength in numbers here, perhaps more so than anywhere else in the world. The amount of amazing artists working here is astounding and we had a lot of fun doing studio visits and seeing each artist’s process and inspiration. This show is the culmination of those visits-intimate encounters with artists kind enough to invite us into their world and talk about their work.

These artists are out in the middle of the night collecting bits of sparkling street trash to brighten up your day. Some are using circular rhythms or parallel lines to find a piece of peace. Others capture dance moves in the street with gold pants and silver balloons. The wolfbats have come out of the caves and the spirits are arising. With so much going all the time in this town, it’s nice to take the time to talk with your neighbors. You can always get to know New York a little bit better…
