Saturday evening saw the launch of a new gallery on Greene Street in SoHo, New York. The Hole is born from two former directors at Deitch Projects, Kathy Grayson and Meghan Coleman, who describe in their witty and unique press release for their opening show,
"... opening a gallery immediately on the heels of Deitch Projects closing has been a struggle... not knowing what to do with ourselves after eight years... ".
As I reported earlier in the year with the westward migration of Jeffrey Deitch to become Director of the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art, The Hole may claim to have had various obstacles on it's maiden voyage but with a network that spans nearly a decade, this gallery is guaranteed to create a scene of its own very quickly. With it's opening exhibition consisting of unfinished works from over twenty artists, it is a poignant message that speaks of greater things to come.
Not Quite Open for Business runs until the 14th August, 2010 at The Hole, 104 Green Street, New York City, NY 10012
