ABOUT

In 2015, after a two-year hiatus, Black & White Gallery / Project Space has settled in Bushwick, Brooklyn - the current creative hub of New York City and continues to experiment with different exhibition modules in its current space and beyond.

Black & White Project Space is a 501c(3) not-for-profit exhibition space dedicated to providing artists the freedom to experiment with new ideas and mediums without commercial pressures. By supporting experimentation and project-based exhibitions, artists are encouraged to cross over diverse art mediums and create site-specific installations as an extension of their representative work.  

Black & White Project Space is a fiscal sponsor for Beach Sessions Dance Series.

INSIDE NEW YORK 2009

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.

BLACK & WHITE ART FUND

The Fund was established in the summer of 2013. The purpose of the Fund is two-fold: to support living, practicing artists by acquiring their work through the Fund’s Acquisition Program, and to encourage museums and other public collecting institutions across the globe to accept the acquired works as gifts through the Fund’s Museum Gift Program. Acquisition funding will be achieved through grants, direct donations and Charitable Sales campaigns conducted by Black & White Gallery/Project Space at art fairs and its new location to be announced soon.

It is NOT an investment fund. The purpose of the Fund is two-fold: to support living, practicing artists by acquiring their work through the Fund’s Acquisition Program, and to encourage museums and other public collecting institutions across the globe to accept the acquired works as gifts through the Fund’s Museum Gift Program.
