ABOUT 99% GALLERY
99% perspiration, 1% inspiration. This old adage still makes sense in 2010. We at 99% Art Space produce the 99% perspiration, allowing the artists we work with to focus on the final 1% inspiration. We want to do the work to create a space which will be conducive to not only art exhibiting, but also to art appreciating, art learning and in the end art creating. We believe in the artist and the artwork they produce. This is the reason we, or any other art space for that matter, even exists. It’s about the artist and the inspiration and enlightenment their final art embodies.
99% is dedicated to doing everything in our power to support the artist and the work they create. We are also dedicated to art learning, through our upcoming series of lectures, classes, workshops and so much more. Of course we also are dedicated to working with the artists we want believe in to produce a regular schedule of exhibitions throughout the year.
Lastly, 99% is dedicated to underdogs. We will exhibit artists who been inspired by the worlds of comic books, animation, new media, graffiti, tattoos, illustration, folk art and many other forms of pop, subversive and outsider imagery.
99% perspiration, 1% inspiration. We like the way that sounds. We like the idea of working hard to create an environment for our artists to engage with comfortably, as they change the world one idea at a time!
P.S. Oh, and it doesn’t hurt that the number on our building is 99! ;)
