The Butcher's Daughter is proud to present "No Vacancy" curated by Valaire Van Slyck. Opening January 9, 2010, this group exhibition features over twenty world-renown emergent and mid-career contemporary artists from around the country.

From the curatorial statement by Valaire Van Slyck,

"The exhibition "No Vacancy" explores the impulse that gives rise to art and artists' attempts to reconcile their dissatisfaction with the world around them. The results of these efforts physically change the world, reordering it and creating points of dynamism in the environment. These points, infused with ideas and attitude, lead to a deeper consideration of thought and experience.

By bringing together many artists in a small gallery, we create a whole greater than the sum of its parts and establish a space of hyper-dynamism, a community with a multitude of perspectives. In turn, this show offers alternatives to the prevailing modes of relating to the world around us - a cacophony of possibility and hope. There is no vacancy in art."

These artists featured in this exhibition are represented in museum collections such as the Museum of Modern Art, Walker Art Center, and Whitney Museum of American Art. International and national exhibitions include those at PS1/MOMA and The Sculpture Center as well as numerous independent galleries and project spaces worldwide. Other credits include editorial photography for magazines, international biennials and Time Square billboards for major multi-national corporations.

The goals of this exhibition as designed by The Butcher's Daughter is to further expand the mission of the gallery and create an opportunity for participants to network with artists, collectors, and creative professionals. To help facilitate this an after party will follow the opening reception. Admittance is limited. Additional details will forthcoming or contact the gallery to reserve your place.
