Freight + Volume is dedicated to showcasing the work of emerging and established artists, and in particular, work which is innovative and not afraid to take risks. While Freight + Volume is especially interested in narrative and text-based material, ultimately our predominant criteria is the quality of the work itself, regardless of technique, content or style; with the motivation to show dynamic, visceral, and provocative new work in all media and dealing with a range of subject matter. In addition, Freight + Volume regularly publishes limited-edition artists' books.
Established in 2005 in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan by Nick Lawrence (co-founder and former partner of LFL Gallery in Chelsea, owner/director of Arts+Leisure in Spanish Harlem, and owner/director of DNA Residency in Provincetown, MA), Freight+Volume was formed by combining the text-based, narrative philosophy and limited edition book focus of its two-year predecessor, Volume, with the motivation to show dynamic, visceral, and provocative new work in all media and dealing with a range of subject matter. In October 2015, the gallery relocated to the Lower East Side of Manhattan.
DNA ARTIST RESIDENCY
The DNA Gallery, founded in 1994 by Nick Lawrence, has for the past 8 years been home to the DNA Artist Residency Program. Every year artists are invited to participate in a one or two-week residency in Provincetown, Massachusetts. While on the Cape, artists create new work inspired by their surroundings or continued from their existing studio practice. They can work both offsite and at DNA in a 2,000 square foot studio, and are also provided free housing. For its eighth season, over sixty artists were invited for individual residencies.The residency is by invitation only.
|FREIGHT + VOLUME MAGAZINE
This unique publication focuses on the artists with whom the gallery works, as well as extending outside the periphery to include other artists, curators, critics and gallerists. Primarily interview- and essay-based, the publication also concentrates on artwork images, studio shots and portraits. In keeping with the tradition of publishing, with which the gallery was founded, Freight + Volume magazine was launched as an outlet to learn about the artists with whom the gallery works, as well as their friends and influences. The magazine is a medium through which to explore not only the work of our artists, but the creative process and the cult of personality.
