A few weeks ago, we updated you on the creation of “The Hole” gallery by two former directors of Deitch Projects (Kathy Grayson & Meghan Coleman) and that they were planning some sort of group exhibition with at least nine artists. A pretty ambitious plan for a gallery put together in the past two months to fill “the hole” left by Jeffrey Deitch right? Well, great projects tend to snowball and now this show now has over 20 key artists and the opening is in less than 24 hours. Uh… how do you get everything picture perfect for your grand entrance into Manhattan? I guess you don’t and just do the best you can when you’re “Not Quite Open for Business”.
The team that put “projects” in the legendary Deitch Projects is curating a daring and creative show that capitalizes on the ad hoc nature of the gallery by asking their artists to submit their deliberately “un-finished” works to give the viewers the experience of catching these perfectionists with their pants down so to speak. AM had the pleasure of visiting and previewing the gorgeous gallery space which ironically was being “un-renovated” in preparation for its “not quite ready to open” grand opening. The show located at 104 Green St. in Soho and opens tonight (June 26th) at 6pm. Get there early because you know that it’s going to be packed to the brim.
Check out the crew of the gallery hard at work after the jump.
