DBA - an acronym for “doing business as” - is a blank canvas. A raw space brought alive by the artists and personalities inhabiting it each season. Blurring the lines between art & commerce, the venue is designed to function as cabaret, dance club, and interactive gallery space.
Each season, the soul of DBA is derived from the creative input of our guest curator. This curator, at his/her sole discretion, creates the conceptual theme of the venue by deciding upon all aspects of its aesthetic direction. DBA embraces its ambiguity, allowing each artist to take full creative control while reinventing the venue within a seasonal “exhibition”. This continuous thematic transformation will ensure a consistently high level of intrigue; spotlighting the artist, enticing the public, and attracting art enthusiasts and party goers alike to take part in a temporary cultural experience which lies beyond the realm of the contemporary art world.
In addition to the original artwork displayed and integrated into the space, each artist’s creative direction will extend to the venue’s exhibition name, decor, fixtures, staging, set/costume design, and creation of a storefront “tableau” that will the present the theme as well as preview the irreverent world that awaits within.
Our First Installation Will be Announced Shortly
