DESCRIPTION
Ad Hoc Art {AHA} is an art gallery and creative fulcrum. Dedicated to showing work that is often marginalized by the larger New York art scene, AHA highlights the areas of street art, pop surrealism, lowbrow, illustration, comic book, tattoo, and print-making, as well as the larger history of underground art, activism, and graffiti.  It is a venue for artists who are passionate, committed to their craft, and challenging the boundaries of a "Fine Art" isolated from society at large.

Ad Hoc Art 2009 featured artists include...Joy Ang, Armsrock, Morning Breath, Crash, Cycle, Daze, Imminent Disaster, Ekundayo, Ewelina Ferruso, Gaia, Logan Hicks, Know Hope, Hiro Kurata, Tommii Lim, Gilbet Oh, Nathan Lee Pickett, Chris Stain, TheDirtyFabulous, & Joe Vaux.

Ad Hoc Art resulted as one of the primary efforts of Peripheral Media Projects {PMP}, a collaborative art, design, and print studio.  Off the Morgan Avenue "L" train, the adjacent AHA & PMP spaces are nestled in an area zoned the "East Williamsburg Industrial Park", amongst concrete factories, lumber yards, metal recyclers, and waves of creative-types looking for affordable live/work spaces.
