After much time and reflection, we have come to the decision to end galleryELL’s programing at the end of 2016. Our sister project, studioELL will remain operational as we shift our focus to alternatives in higher education and community organizing.
Though galleryELL has always been a fluid project that has allowed for the evolution needed to lead the zeitgeist, the project finally feels like its scope has become oddly limited. At the start of 2017, galleryELL.com will shift to become an archive in order to highlight all the amazing projects we have accomplished over the past eight years.
We want to thank our artists, followers and supporters for the enthusiasm you have shown us throughout the years. This project has been fully artist funded and run! We pride ourselves on maintaining this identity which has helped shape much of the cultural landscape today. This project has meant so much — from the studio visits and residences, to exhibitions, writing and curatorial projects. We stand proud of everything we have accomplished over the past eight years.
We wish you all the best in continued success in and out of the studio — with rigorous conversations within the multitude of varied art spaces we occupy.
