Williamsburg will soon lose two more of its beloved galleries. The Hogar Collective, which has graced Grand Street for the last eight years, is set to close shop at the end of February, and Capricious Space will lock its gates for good in mid-March. Both galleries say goodbye with group shows of their artists.
What does the future hold for these institutions? Todd Rosenbaum of The Hogar Collective told the WG that he plans to concentrate on his own art for a few months and then open a new gallery “somewhere in New York City.” Capricious will live on as a magazine, book publisher, and vagabond curatorial project.
For their finale, The Hogar Collection will host an evening of sound performances by Ken Butler, Celia Biagini, and Damian Catera on February 26. Capricious Space has two send-off events lined up: the rowdy-titled Drunkn’ Sailor Reading on February 27, and a screening of the film Throwing Pains on March 6.
