TRANSFER is an exhibition space that explores the friction between networked studio practice and its physical instantiation.
The gallery was founded in March 2013 to support artists working with computer-based practices by producing solo exhibitions and activations within our walls. In 2015 TRANSFER presented artwork at six international art fairs and curated nine solo exhibitions in our Brooklyn-based gallery. Now in its fourth year, TRANSFER is independently owned and directed by Kelani Nichole.
Statement from the Director:
Today artists live, work and exhibit on the Internet. They reach a networked global community, often embedding artworks in the everchanging context of streaming images, open data sources, and instant feedback mechanisms that constitute online public space. Their resulting body of work is sometimes best suited for the browser – at TRANSFER the work develops beyond the screen into the physical space of the gallery.
TRANSFER operates as a gallery with a spirit of openness. It is a white cube testing new practices, malleable to accommodate internet-based studios with experimental curation and development in the contemporary art market. The gallery explores alternative modes of support for distributed artworks, and considers new formats for exhibition, collection, and appreciation of the art that comes to you through the computer.
