About The Hole Art Gallery

 & why it made the Carpe City list

  • The Hole NYC, known for unique and innovative contemporary art, was founded in July 2010 by Kathy Grayson. She says their goal is to “fill a hole in the downtown community.” (This may begin with their clever logo: the word “the” inside of a black hole!)
  • The Hole presents monthly solo and group exhibitions, focusing on “emerging artists and thematic group shows.” It’s a collaboration across the arts. They represent artists from America and abroad and have exhibited hundreds more.
  • After opening a second location in Tribeca in Spring 2021, they expanded to a new 8,000 sq. ft. space in Los Angeles in February 2022.
  • In between exhibitions, you can see performances, events, and special projects across disciplines to support collaboration and the downtown artist community.
  • Check out their online “shop” for exhibition catalogs, books, posters, and more.
