Arty Election Parties: Watch Results Roll In From Galleries on the Lower East Side and in Brooklyn

Despite the drastic implications of today’s U.S. presidential election for the art world, only a few of galleries — at least that we know of — will be holding results parties: Broome Street non-profit White Box, the new Bruce High Quality Foundation University in the East Village, Bushwick’s Grace Exhibition Space, and Williamsburg stand-bys Front Room Gallery and City Reliquary. Both spaces, appropriately, are also featuring election-themed exhibitions, which attendees can peruse while the votes roll in.

Front Room is currently presenting its third quadrennial exhibition, “The Ballot Show,” boasting works by some 40 artists responding to the U.S.’s arcane electoral college system, and the country’s voting culture. The Roebling Street gallery “will be presenting live coverage as polls close on election night,” according to its event page for the party, which starts at 8pm and goes until a winner emerges.

Nearby, City Reliquary will hold its “Election Night Circus” from 7pm onwards, with an affordable $5 admission charge that goes entirely to Sandy relief efforts.

Further into Brooklyn, Grace Exhibition Space has a huge night of performance art planned alongside its live election coverage. Its 7pm-midnight Election Might party, with a $10 suggested donation, boasts some 20 participating performance artists.

Meanwhile, on the Lower East Side, White Box will be holding an opening reception from 6pm to midnight for “AmeriKKKa the Beautiful,” an exhibition curated by Raul Zamudio, organized by Juan Puntes, and featuring works by more than two dozen artists, which will double as an election results party.

And a few blocks up and over at 34 Avenue A, the artist collective Bruce High Quality Foundation will be throwing an election night party at BHQFU from “8pm till dawn,” per a Facebook post this afternoon.

  1. All good points. Perhaps the money saved can be out towards excellent on-site content material genration, which search engines do like theses days.

  2. I love my UAG for my Galaxy S4. Ordered it the exact same date I pre-ordered my Cell phone.

    Have the outland but would appreciate to acquire a Scout.
    I’ve recommended UAG to all my pal and my brother ordered two. One particular for his son’s new S3
    and a single for his S3. A gal at operate ordered one
    particular for her new Note two soon after she observed
    mine and I talk to her about it. I agree with Cathy C “my phone is way to huge of an investment not to guard it with a very good case”.
    These scenarios ROCK!
