TEMPORARY ART GALLERIES AT OPENHOUSE
Our venues are built to accommodate great art. That means all-white spaces, set up ready to hang our client’s pieces and present them as they were meant to be seen. Our spaces were also carefully selected for location, for high footfall in the right part of the city.
Take Hunter & Gatti: The Series. This exhibition used 301 Mulberry as its gallery space. The artist’s photographs and paintings were of mixed size, so they needed a lot of wall space and careful positioning. With a gallery hanging system lining all the walls, it was easy for them to hang their work. The space also has five skylights that let in natural light during the day when we had the gallery open to the public. Mulberry’s large, open 4,500 square footage gave the exhibition an uncrowded, museum type feel.
Hunter & Gatti’s art event also called for a projector and screen, so they needed a large wall to fit the screen and a place to hang the projector from, which are things that Mulberry has. The event also called for some separation within the venue space- Mulberry has three different rooms, which can be open to each other or closed off by a drape and pipe system.
Nathan Bond held his temporary art gallery at 168 Bowery. That venue is also lined with a gallery hanging system, so his paintings could easily be hung all over the space at different heights. Bowery doesn’t have quite as many walls as Mulberry, but for a smaller temporary art gallery the Bowery space is a great space. Bond’s art didn’t feel crowded, but the smaller area gave the gallery a more intimate feel. It also has a wrap-around facade, which gave the client high visibility from the street as well as endless sunlight during the day.
As for all our clients, we offered the artist our social media reach and posted widely about this event.
