Greenwich Village is among Manhattan's most desirable and expensive residential neighborhoods. It's history, however, betrays it's monied status. The Village, with it's quiet, shaded streets, lined with lovely brick and brownstone townhouses, was once the incubating ground of artistic, social and political movements that have helped shape US history. From the Beats to the Folk Movement, from workers rights to gay rights, the Village has often been the center of it all. Tours are Mondays and Fridays at 2pm, and Wednesdays and Saturdays at 10am.

Opening Reception |
Featuring work by:Annie DunningAganetha DyckWilliam EakinNina KatchadourianAlison Reiko Loader and Christopher Plenzich A humanist truism states that there is no art in the non-human world. And yet, there is much that is not human in art. Indeed, art history often begins with depictions of animals (usually the iconic horses of Lascaux Caves), as well as objects made from their bodies, such as etched shells, or carved bones and teeth. While assuming that such images and artifacts inaugurate an uninterrupted aesthetic evolution spanning human existence is questionable, it is nonetheless tempting to see in them one of art’s formative paradoxes: borne of our closeness with animals, it also marks our movement away from them.Although contemporary art continues to be defined by human activities, the notion of animal culture now serves as a point of departure for a range of artistic practices focused on multispecies aesthetics and interspecies communication. Animal Intent explores trends through the work of artists who partner with non-humans in the creation of unique aesthetic languages. Rather than merely representing animals, using them as surrogates, or politicizing their bodies as part of a broad social critique, these artists treat animal instinct as a form of stylistic invention in its own right. As such, their work questions the validity of anthropocentric theories of creative labor by emphasizing the aesthetic intention of animals. Animal Intent thus highlights the possibilities, limits, and ethics of collaborating with non-human others in the realization of artistic projects, while subtly questioning theories of the post-human and its contrary: the anthroposcene.
