P! is a new multidisciplinary exhibition space located in New York’s Chinatown. Founded by Prem Krishnamurthy, P! extends the curatorial, editorial, and publishing work of Project Projects and proposes an experimental space of display in which the radical possibilities of disparate disciplines, historical periods, and modes of production rub elbows. A free-wheeling combination of project space, commercial gallery, and Mom-and-Pop-Kunsthalle, P! engages with presentation strategies and models to emphasize rupture over tranquility, interference over mere coexistence, transparency over obfuscation, and passion over cool remove.
The inaugural exhibition, Process 01: Joy, opens in September 2012 featuring a unique interaction of work by Chauncey Hare, Christine Hill, and Karel Martens. The space’s architectural concept, designed by Leong Leong Architecture, will premiere in this first show and evolve with each successive installation at P!.
