9 Highlights From Bushwick Open Studios 2019

"...Space 776 Gallery is pretty unorthodox. They have a space in Seoul, South Korea, and another in Brooklyn. Jourdain Jongwon Lee is the founder (pictured center) and he chose to open the space for a wide array of artists to exhibit; they show a lot of international artists, which is a treat in Bushwick. Thumbs up to the gallery’s embrace of the community — much needed — and they even have a residency ...I will be paying more attention to this unique space. "—Hrag Vartanian

Meet the Faces of New Pandemics, the LGBTQ+ Agency That Could Change Modeling Forever by  Stephanie Eckardt

"...My only real public performance so far was in a show I had at this gallery called Space 776, where I laid on this gold sheet for three hours. Chella painted my entire body gold, but I was completely nude, and I told people they could lay down with or touch me. The gold came from how I documented five different couples and their stories, then gold-leafed their hands and photographed them.” - MaryV Benoit

A Recipe for the Perfect Art Fair

All the things the Art on Paper Fair does right by Alanna Martinez 

"...Booths that benefitted from the extra legroom were Brooklyn’s Space 776, which brought work by a single artist named Jungsan Kim Yun-sik.
