Reflecting Transformations references the regeneration of the area and the transformative
nature that art can have on a community. This group exhibit also reflects the minimalist
aesthetic that the blank slate of a new development can afford.
Our next exhibit is an empty storefront at the Caledonia, a new condominium building
under the High Line.
NO LONGER EMPTY is an innovative project involving a group of artists and
curators who are interested in exploring a new paradigm for making and presenting art.
A series of exhibitions and events is planned that will utilize multiple vacated storefronts
in New York City. Providing an opportunity for artists to revitalize these spaces with
thoughtful, sustainable art installations.
Curated by Manon Slome, Asher Remy-Toledo and Julia Draganovic

NO LONGER EMPTY
FILLING VACATED STOREFRONTS WITH ART
NO LONGER EMPTY is an experiment in embracing an opportunity of the current Great Recession – the vacated storefronts of New York City. The art project seeks to reclaim empty business spaces and fill them with artistic enterprise.
NO LONGER EMPTY references the anxiety of the passing of a gilded age. The emptiness. We embrace the opportunity to fill the void, with a series of dynamic inter-related art installations, video works, sculpture, photography, painting, sound art and performance.
NO LONGER EMPTY begins at two storefronts at the Chelsea Hotel, the historical art heart of Manhattan. Established and emerging artists, including 5 Chelsea Hotel resident artists respond to the space to create raw, dynamic work and pioneer a new model of community art. Our projects strives to stem any potential neighborhood decline by lavishing empty buildings with art.
We have two other locations in the pipeline, The Caledonian, under the Highline opening July 23rd and Time Square (opp. M&M’s) coming soon. We intend to have revolving exhibitions throughout the year, based on funding. NO LONGER EMPTY is not for profit. We are also seeking sponsorship.
