Bond Street Gallery closing
Did you hear? Bond Street Gallery, after only three shows, is closing its doors. Which is a shame--it was a fantastic space and the first exhibit (the only one I had a chance to see in person, unfortunately) was amazing. The energy of the space felt vibrant, smart, and right on the money. Director/curator Amani Olu gave a brief interview to PDN which you can read here, and Timothy Briner (one of the artists in the current show, which will close two weeks early) has a Gmail chat with him as well posted up on his blog here. Amani is one to watch and I'm sure will be on to other great projects--in addition to his work with Humble Arts Foundation, Made by Brown, and being an all-around nice guy--but it's sad to see that a forum for contemporary photography has shut down.
