Economy of Space: The New Gallery that is Prole Drift

Over on New American Paintings Blog, I recently spoke with Dirk Park, co-founder of Aqua Art Miami, Platform Gallery and now founder of Prole Drift in Seattle’s International District. Although I went into the interview thinking we would discuss the mechanics of opening a traditional gallery space, hearing the full story revealed an unexpected gallery structure that could not be more fitting for the present economic moment.  Full interview here.
