THE STILL HOUSE GROUP "honk if you don't exist"
The Still House Group is an artist-run organization based in Red Hook, Brooklyn. Formulated on the principle of a collaborative environment via shared production and exhibition space, the group currently supports eight permanent artists, and an additional rotating residency program. Founded in 2007 by Alex Perweiler and Isaac Brest, Still House has produced numerous exhibitions and projects in the United States and Europe; the most recent being their summer residency program, produced by Nicholas Cinque, in a mid-century barn in Amagansett, NY. After two consecutive years in their Red Hook facility, the group has used the Amagansett studio for the artists to continue their practice in a significantly altered environment. The residency, from Memorial Day to Labor Day, culminates in an exhibition at The Fireplace Project: a survey on the ways the new rural environment has, if at all, affected the work of artists who have previously only known studio life in New York City.
