Pocket Utopia announces inaugural exhibition and preliminary artist roster

Readers may have read on Hyperallergic and The L Magazine that Pocket Utopia, one of the first galleries to open in Bushwick, is opening a new space on the Lower East Side. Located on 191 Henry Street, between Clinton and Jefferson, the gallery is in the middle of a renovation, but nonetheless intrepid director Austin Thomas has organized "The Queen and I," a one-night exhibition this Thursday, March 28, 6-8pm. The new gallery is a collaborative project with C.G. Boerner, who has galleries on East 73rd Street and in Dussledorf.

Thomas's  new site for utopic events and exhibitions.

Full (exciting) disclosure: Thomas, who has signed a seven year lease, has invited me to join her roster, which also includes Ellen Letcher (Famous Accountants), Paul D'Agostino (Centotto), and Matthew Miller. I did two residencies at Thomas's original space in Bushwick in 2009, and I'm looking forward to working with her again. But I better get to work: I'm scheduled for a solo show in January.

The Grand Reopening of Pocket Utopia: "The Queen and I, a one night exhibition of royal photographs by playwright Donald Steele," Pocket Utopia, New York, NY. One night only: March 28th, 2012. By subway, F train to East Broadway.
