ALLGOLD is comprised of artists, designers, and musicians seeking to facilitate a community by organizing artistic endeavors that necessitate a dedicated space. We provide a site for exploration and exchange in New York City and abroad. As an artist run space currently in residence at the MoMA PS1 Print Shop, we are seeking to develop a relationship with a forward thinking institution that re-imagines the social possibilities of the art community and its museums, that cultivates artistic expression, and fosters experimentation within the working process. We are currently programming film screenings, live performances, focused aural events, radiophonic broadcasts, talks, dance nights, social gatherings and much more. Our interest in multiple platforms is employed to concentrate the social aspects of various practices while leaving the floor open to emergent formats and concerns of the present. By expanding the community of participants who possess a unique vision, we hope to challenge standards of value.
Current ALLGOLD residents are Kevin Beasley, Inva Çota, Stephen Decker, and Golnaz Esmaili.
