Project Projects Co-Founder Opens a “Mom-and-Pop-Kunsthalle” in Chinatown

If you have any interaction with the art world whatsoever, you’ve come across a book, website, or exhibition designed by Project Projects: they’ve worked with everyone from MoMA and the Whitney to Paper Monument and Bard CCS. Now one of the firm’s co-founders, Prem Krishnamurthy, will open P!, a gallery in Chinatown, at 334 Broome Street. “Gallery” doesn’t accurately describe Krishnamurthy’s lofty ambitions for P!, which aims to be more like a “Mom-and-Pop-Kunsthalle.” It will open to the public on September 16 with a group exhibition by Chauncey Hare, Christine Hill, and Karel Martens, that has something to do with labor (ew), alienation (ew), and love of work (yes!). We wouldn’t be posting if we didn’t think it was gonna be good. This is a space to watch.

    “love of work”…hmm…how about love of fair wages, or love of health insurance, vacation etc? Maybe Project Projects is better than most but exploitative labor practices are rampant in the NYC star-design culture that this project is very much a part of. They’ll need to watch their step when addressing issues of labor in the context of art and design unless they are prepared to take on their friends. In the current context, with the election looming, its really not enough to throw some provocative fonts up on a wall.
