Biographical / Historical:
AC Project Room was an independent, artist-run commercial gallery that operated in New York City from 1990 to 2001. It was co-founded by artists Paul Bloodgood, Alissa Friedman, and Anne Chu. The gallery began in a spare room at Art Cart in 1989, an artist-run art transportation and installation company, as the Brand-X Gallery (The Art Cart Gallery), and held permanent locations at 15 Renwick Street, 585 Broome Street, and 453 West 17th Street in Manhattan. In addition to solo and group exhibitions that cut across formal and generational lines, the gallery organized performances and symposiums, collaborated with other galleries, dealers, and curators, and became an informal space for people to gather in community.
Provenance:
The collection was donated in 2019 by Kelly E. Adams, widow of Paul Bloodgood.
