Founded by artist Julia Justo, East Village Art View (EVAV) is an inclusive exhibition space in a NYC apartment. It uses the traditional format of a gallery setting to mitigate and confront systemic problems of exclusiveness in the arts. It seeks to provide a platform for presentation of projects by overlooked and marginalized communities as well as to create dialogue between artists and audiences on a global stage.
East Village Art View (EVAV) invites independent curators, artists and arts professionals to submit exhibition proposals to be considered for the gallery space. EVAV offers artist talks to accompany the work on display at EVAV. East Village Art View offers volunteer opportunities to help with art exhibitions, writing and reviews, press outreach, updating social media accounts, event photography, event planning, and provide administrative support (emails, database). Admission to East Village Art View is free.
