HANDJOB Gallery//Store | 238 Wilson Ave

Curated by Zoe Alexander Fisher

HANDJOB Gallery//Store hosts a selection of works by over 25 contemporary artists, whose job is to produce, by hand, an edition of 5-10 objects, which are by the artist’s own definition functional. The fields of Art and Design have been largely divorced in terms of functionality; Art is non-functional, and Design or Craft is strictly functional. By inviting artists to create functional objects, HANDJOB creates a space between Art, Design, and Craft. HANDJOB supports dialogue between the artist, the designer, the producer and the consumer, towards the production of more interesting objects and a richer everyday aesthetic. For BOS HJGS will exhibit a special edition of works by specifically Bushwick artists.
