For their Art in General New Commission, The Still House Group (an emerging artist-run organization based in Brooklyn) presents +1, a new artist-run space in the heart of Chinatown. Housed in a storefront space under the Manhattan Bridge, +1 will present a series of exhibitions by The Still House Group’s permanent roster of eight artists: Alex Perweiler, Isaac Brest, Zachary Susskind, Louis Eisner, Jack Greer, Brendan Lynch, Dylan Lynch, and Nick Darmstaedter. Each exhibition will be a solo presentation with a plus one – the addition of another artwork, object, or artist to the space. Building on Art in General’s own history as an artist-run alternative space, +1 is a new platform for The Still House Group to present unconventional work and exchange ideas.
Trading New York’s near record winter for an out of reach summer, the sixth iteration of +1 features a multi-media installation by Dylan Lynch + Miles Huston. Not limited to the interior, Lynch + Huston have attached a fabric vestibule to outside of the building, creating a separate room with a viewing window and gallery bench. Behind the glass, a grid of water-worn boulders, a glowing sea creature, and a neon sign of a palm tree and waves all compete to momentarily distract viewers from the endless winter outside.
