Black & White Project Space is a fiscal sponsor for Beach Sessions Dance Series.
Black & White Gallery was founded in New York in 2002. From the start, the Gallery has been committed to cultivating promising artists in the initial and more advanced phases of their careers exploring contemporary themes and concepts through multiple mediums.The Gallery's original location was a unique industrial indoor/outdoor ground floor space in Williamsburg, Brooklyn - the breeding ground of emerging talent at that time. From 2006 to 2010 Black & White Gallery operated from two locations - Williamsburg and Chelsea. In 2010 the Chelsea location was closed and not-for-profit Black & White Project Space was established. From 2010 to 2012 both the Gallery and Project Space operated side by side presenting simultaneous exhibition programs out of the Gallery's original indoor/outdoor location in Williamsburg.
From 2015 to 2018 Black & White Gallery / Project Space operated from its new brick-and-mortar space in Bushwick, Brooklyn - the current creative hub of New York City. Going forward, the Gallery will continue to experiment with different exhibition modules both in digital and physical spaces.
