As I trudged through snow bound TriBeCa towards the abandoned suit outlet that is now 15 Warren, I was skeptical. I’d heard tales of debauchery from friends who attended the chaotic opening, and expected another well-intentioned but inexpertly executed downtown art show about kids by kids for kids. My cynicism left me unprepared for what I found. The three levels of the abandoned building turned pop-up gallery housed a mass of work, all anonymous, curated and presented with an impressive level of care and precision. The work itself spans every medium and subject imaginable, from liquid LSD (stolen at the opening) to oil paintings to a gaping hole dug into the foundation of the building itself, the only criteria being that the work was an effort outside of the artists comfort zone.
