Below Grand is a commercial gallery and curatorial collective located at 53 Orchard St on the Lower East Side of New York. Steered by artists, the gallery aims to provide artists with an enriching gallery experience; one that builds solidarity, community, and safe harbor through its understanding of the stresses and material circumstances involved with engaging with the commercial art market. Below Grand’s ultimate goal is the development of a polyphonic, multivalent artistic community; with the intention of creating a horizontal structure of empowerment through the linking of multiple communities. Providing context through curation, the gallery is focused on introducing new artists to the New York art community while addressing imbalance through curation. Below Grand is passionate about curation as an act of discovery, recovery, and restoration with the understanding that curation is an act of identifying already present communities and building a visual counterculture.
I am a founding member of the curatorial team.
