Art Nerd New York | Los Angeles

Come to the super fun chashama gala on June 8

June 8th is my most favorite event of the year- the chashama gala. (they always have Delirous Hair Design on hand to transform guests’ heads into works of art- my favorite party ice breaker ever! ) It’s always a great night of experiential art, food, open bars, and performances. Art Nerds get a special discount, see below. Hope to see you there!

For one evening only, chashama will transform the former Condé Nast office and Frank Gehry-designed dining hall with performances and interactive art experiences. The evening will be a live demonstration of their programs, showcasing the process of activating unused space for artists and audiences.

We invite you to participate in the art-making and celebration!

About chashama:

chashama nurtures artists by transforming unused property into affordable live, work, and presentation space. Through creative space transformation, chashama redistributes the untapped resources available in our urban landscape by partnering with private and public property owners. By structuring a mission around this goal, chashama has become a major force in the NYC arts community by supporting the work and ideas of an increasing number of emerging artists every year.


chashama began in 1995 initially focused on the production of theater performances in vacant properties along 42nd Street in Manhattan. Soon, chashama began fielding several requests from artists asking to use the space during off-nights. Recognizing that the lack of affordable studio and presentation space was a great threat to sustaining a diverse, dynamic, and provocative cultural environment, chashama’s mission evolved into finding ways to connect artists and performers with untapped temporarily vacant real estate.
