Victoria Manganiello: No Home Gallery, 2015
No Home Gallery is a free, nomadic art space that organizes experiences, exhibitions and happenings in various locations in New York City with rotating teams of artists, curators and hosts. It offers emerging artists, art enthusiasts, and the viewing public a forum for collaboration and creation. Using art as the vehicle, collaborators are encouraged to move beyond the boundaries of traditional fine art exhibitions where artworks are simply hung on walls to be viewed and to produce a space that activates dialogue, engagement, and experiential learning relevant to topics. The projects exhibit artwork that a viewer can directly interact with either by way of direct communication with the artist or by a physical contribution to the artwork itself. No Home Gallery strives to create a non-traditional form of presentation and by using unconventional, but exceedingly accessible spaces (e.g., apartments, roof tops, bookstores, museums, banks, studios). The constructs and customs of the traditional art space are less important than offering a place for artistic collaboration and dialogue. No Home Gallery facilitates the creation of a community of artists, curators, hosts, and enthusiasts alike; each event is produced by teams who exchange and develop ideas in response to the world around them. It is immediate, vibrant, relevant and presented as it is made—in the communities, homes, and spaces that animate the artists themselves.
