On View at BQE Fitness is a curation along the main hallway in the largest gym in NYC. With a whopping 5,000 active members sharing and purchasing work, our artists are successful in showcasing in this space. Francis Gautier and C1Mah were both displayed here for NYC Art Week in June, followed by Toons NYC in July and Renda Writer in August.
The Grey Dog:
What says summer like brunch? The Grey Dog, an all-day brunch restaurant, has three locations and rotate our artists work seasonally. June through September featured Lee Lee La Cubana at the Soho location, Mixy Inks at University Pl and Kate Segal in Chelsea.
The Culture Candy had the honor of onboarding as a rotating curator for Chelsea Market, providing our artists with a presence in Chelsea. Some would call Chelsea the Capitol of the New York City art scene, or even the world since 57% of participating galleries in worldwide art conventions such as Art Basel are New York City galleries. In honor of the launch of NYC Art Week or heART Week, The Culture Candy curated a "Chelsea Market Takeover" through heART Con called The Melting Pot. This curation consisted of artists: Hungry Artist NY, Francis Gautier, Lovedom, Lee Lee La Cubana, Donuts and Henny, Zalika Zeni, Jency Sekaran, Diamond Sanchez and Michelle Buser. Work was seen, tagged on social media, and purchased by the city of New York and the tourism that the market attracts. In mid July, the exhibition was swapped out for our summer display called Made in NY featuring artists MC Hewlett, Jency Sekaran, Eye of Robyn, Eric Freur, Lee Lee La Cubana and Zalika Zeni. We look forward to our next rotation of curation and providing our artists the platform they deserve, on the grand stage of the Chelsea art scene.
