“You always have to go bigger,” said artist and cultural entrepreneur Peter Hopkins, announcing his exciting plans to turn the empty warehouse at 299 Meserole St into a cultural center of the East Williamsburg and Bushwick area. “Art schools, museums, cultural institutions… We have a chance to do things differently here in Bushwick,” he continued. 299 Meserole has announced its soft launch on May 14, and a plan to play a major role during the upcoming Bushwick Open Studios. The building will feature several exhibitions curated by local, as well as international galleries and VCU School of Art. Present will be also collections of zines, books, as well as feminist symposium on self-pleasure.

Peter Hopkins Live

 
“It is about projects, not art shows or traditional art fairs,” explained Peter Hopkins who is moving his own gallery, Art Helix, to the building in July. Hopkins does not want to repeat old concept of art and cultural entrepreneurship that we have seen in Chelsea and elsewhere in NYC, (“Let’s not just create a little safe Chelsea on Bogart Street”) but wants to create something completely new, a sustainable model of a cultural dialogue functioning on an international level.
