The shows take place on the last Friday of every month and we just celebrated our one year anniversary! Make sure to keep an eye out for our future events.

We are committed to the underground, the underdog, the experimental and the emergent; to curatorial proposals, workshops and skill-sharing; and to group exhibitions, collaborations and artist talks.
