Room is an artist-run gallery showing contemporary art by international New York-based artists. Room positions itself outside the dealer-gallery model, aiming to provide a place where a new relationship between artists and viewers can grow, and to foster a context for discussion of art's self-renewing role in our community.
Room is dedicated to the memory of Robert Hughes; and commits to maintaining his critical legacy.
The basic project of art is always to make the world whole, and comprehensible: to restore it to us in all its glory and its occasional nastiness, not through argument, but through feeling; and then to close the gap between you and everything that is not you, and in this way to pass from feeling to meaning. It's not something that committees can do: it's not a task achieved by groups or by movements; but by individuals, each person mediating in some way between a sense of history and an experience of the world. - Robert Hughes 1980
Room is located in Greenpoint at 824 Manhattan Ave, a little north of Calyer, by a Bank of America, on the 3rd floor above an attorney's office. For access call 646-269.7056.
