Big Thanks to ABXY Soho for hosting our Sofar! With a mission to bridge the gap between emerging artists and collectors, writer and curator Allison Barker established ABXY SoHo in 2015. The 2000 square foot loft located at 78 Grand Street (between Greene and Wooster) serves as both studio space and showroom to a highly curated group of emerging artists. Inspired by great female art patrons like Peggy Guggenheim and Gertrude Stein, AB has created a place for young artists to make, display, and discuss their work with collectors of all ages.
Dedicated to encouraging collaboration among the growing community of artists, collectors and creative professionals gathering at ABXY, programming at the studio includes live musical performances, film screenings, curated discussions, artist presentations, and experiential events, which illuminate the influence of contemporary culture on art and aesthetics today.
