In mid-June, 2010, I organized an outdoor mural with artist Depoe at Allegra LaViola Gallery (179 East Broadway, NYC) as a component of an exhibition titled “Draw The Line”. The exhibition opened on June 29th, 2011, and ran until August 6th.

Mural: Depoe @ Allegra LaViola Gallery, NYC
Mural: How & Nosm @ East 14th Street, NYC
In March of 2011, I worked with the MaNY Project and artist duo “How & Nosm” to organize this street facing mural on the exterior roll-down gate of a storefront located on East 14th Street between 2nd and 3rd Avenues.
Mural: GAIA @ 223 East Broadway, NYC
Concurrent to No Longer Empty’s “Re-Purpose” exhibition, I organized and documented a mural on the roll-down gate at the store-front’s exterior, with artist GAIA, as a continuation of NLE’s ongoing site-specific mural program.
Mural: D*FACE @ East Village, NYC
In the autumn of 2009, I organized this mural by London-based artist D*FACE across 3 large roll-down gates on the exterior of a vacant building located at 200 Clinton Street in Manhattan. The artwork is part of my ongoing mural project with No Longer Empty and was produced in participation with Jonathan LeVine Gallery, coinciding with D*Face’s solo exhibition “Ludovico Aversion Therapy / All Your Dreams Belong To Us” September 12 – October 10, 2009
Exhibit & Mural: Hotel Chelsea, W23rd Street, NYC
In July of 2009, I organized a mural on the street-level exterior of the Hotel Chelsea (222 West 23rd Street, NYC) to commemorate our first exhibition as No Longer Empty. Israeli artist “Know Hope“, in collaboration with Chris Stain, created this site-specific artwork directly upon the roll-down gate of NLE’s inaugural exhibition. I documented the artists at work by creating the time-lapse video below:
No Longer Empty began exhibiting at two storefronts at the Chelsea Hotel, the historical art heart of Manhattan. Artists such as Michael Bevilacqua, Alina and Jeff Bliumis and Diana Puntar filled economy-ravaged spaces with installations while responding to the present dire financial straits and its effect on the urban landscape and national psyche. Resident artists at the Hotel Chelsea also exhibited.
No Longer Empty´s first exhibition took the name of its location. The Chelsea Hotel offered a forum for artistic dialogue. The spaces here were not gallery or museum locales and the resulting works and conversations were not defined by such conventional exhibition spaces. Indeed, the exhibition was the pioneer of No Longer Empty´s new model of community art. The project strived to stem any potential neighborhood decline resulting from unused and abandoned buildings by lavishing them with art.
