Art in General is pleased to present +1, a New Commission by The Still House Group.
The Still House Group is an emerging artist-run organization based in Red Hook, NY. Still House is inspired by the ideals of a young creative demographic bound by expectations of subordination to preexisting models, and supports a unit of young artists, providing them with an environment to conceptualize, produce, and exhibit their work. The strong emphasis on collaboration encourages members of the group to assist, critique, and formally represent one another, ultimately creating a collective drive that balances the advancement of individual careers with the growth of Still House the entity. The group attempts to escape the traditional gallery set-up, gearing itself, regardless of the seemingly insurmountable challenges, toward the goal of creative sustainability.
Founded in 2007 by Isaac Brest and Alex Perweiler as an online viewing platform, Still House has produced numerous exhibitions in New York, Los Angeles and Miami. During 2010, the group conducted an eight-month residency in an abandoned Department of Transportation office in TriBeCa, and has since built a permanent, multi-faceted arts institution currently based in Red Hook, Brooklyn. This location serves as a hub for new work, a satellite environment to the art center of Manhattan where young artists engage in a space of their own.
