The Allies

Its Internet Week! Aside from whatever that means, there’s also a pretty cool pop up exhibition/happening place put on by The Allies. The public launch is tomorrow night at 37 East 1St Street, yoga is every morning, special farm to table dinners are the 21 and 22, and the terrace includes a chill spot to hang out, plus an installation by Columbia’s architecture school.

With traditional mid-sized galleries disappearing and young artists armed with the tools to succeed outside of a traditional art space, New York City’s Imagination in Space and London’s We Are Pop Up are collaborating to prototype a new gallery model. The Allies captures the spirit of a new wave of artists that marries street, Internet and gallery. It will feature art by Joey LElmo Hood and Sam Spratt; and it’s partnered with Columbia’s architecture school to create a public seating installation in the backyard. For Internet Week and Memorial Day Weekend, The Allies challenges the gallery to be more diverse, democratically priced and welcoming to the public.
