The gallery is located in an industrial warehouse building at 526 West 26th Street between 10th and 11th Avenues, four blocks from the DIA Art Foundation. The gallery occupies 3,300 square feet on the eighth floor and overlooks the uptown Manhattan skyline. Co-founder, Carol Greene, was the former director of the John Good Gallery where she introduced the work of Juan Usle and Fiona Rae.

The gallery will present exhibitions of contemporary art and will focus on showing emerging artists from the United States and abroad. The exhibitions will privilege artworks, which are intellectual, theoretical and above all experiential. The program for the 1995/96 season will include solo exhibitions by Jacqueline Humphries, Blake Rayne, Scott Lyall and various group exhibitions exploring artistic and cultural issues. THE GREENE ROOM, a show of young New York artists is scheduled for Spring 1996.

The exhibition will introduce work by a group of international artists among them are Blake Rayne (New York), Don Brown & Stephen Murphy (London), Gary Rough (Glasgow), John Frankland (London), Lucy Gunning (London), and Laura Owens (Los Angeles).

TELL EVERYONE presents a range of conceptual and aesthetic ideas in video, photography, painting, sculpture, and installation. The opening reception will be held Thursday evening October 12th from 6-9PM. The exhibition will continue through November 12, 1995.
