MF Gallery first opened its doors in June 2003 in New York City’s Lower East Side. The gallery quickly became a meeting point for all kinds of underground artists and international collectors. Known for its wild opening parties, (Often featuring live music, zombie invasions, ten foot tall death metal robots, kegs and sheep brains.) and creative art shows, MF Gallery is now a staple of the underground art scene.

In 2009, MF Gallery opened a second location in Genova, Italy, introducing many of the best American artists to the Italian public and bringing some Italian artists back to the U.S. Also in 2009, the NYC gallery moved to a bigger space in Gowanus, Brooklyn. In addition to continuing to host cutting edge art shows, MF Gallery now has a full “Art Shop” featuring artist prints, t-shirts, art toys, comics, books, and more collectible items.

Thanks to all of MF Gallery’s great artists, collectors and friends, the first ten years of have been fantastic… Let’s hope for (at least) ten more! Cheers!

MF Gallery is located at 213 Bond Street, between Butler and Baltic Streets in the Gowanus area of Brooklyn, NY. Take the A or G to Hoyt/ Schermerhorn, the F or G to Bergen, or the R to Union.

New York Fucking City

I’ll refrain from the old cliches, that New Yorkers really are the nicest people despite the reputation or that fuck is just a part of the vocabulary. What’s been eating at me is that I’ve decided it’s fucking crack. The OG. Once you’re here everywhere else seems lame, and you know what? Everywhere else is not lame, you just have some sort of warped perception because you’ve been on the crack too long. Everything’s posh and glitz and even the seedy has its own appeal. I long to stand in the tumble weeds, I want to sleep in the desert. But here I am…stuck on the crack, pounding my head in fear I’d never make it in the tumbleweeds for long. It’s been said if you can make it in New York you can make it anywhere, but if you’ve made it here can you take it anywhere else?

New York City feels small to me, Lilliputian, homey. Yet all the tiny facets of this gleaming gem make it shine so brightly.  The prisms illuminate me, taunting me like a sequin-clad dancer at Studio 54 long after the music’s over. Have I become no more than a hovering moth?  The limelight’s gone. I’ve basked till I burned.

Where would I go? I suppose I’d acclimate after time, though the very thought is difficult to digest. As hard as it is to imagine any other life than burning brightly until that last, long goodnight.
