Opening tonight at Ideal Glass Studios: "The Godfather of Street Art, Richard Hambleton, and his Contemporaries: Al Diaz, Ken Hiratsuka, and Scot Borofsky"

The exhibition, presented by Salomon Arts Gallery, will explore the flourishing of the illegal street art movement in New York City in the 1980s through four of its most important and influential early creators and conceptualists. Today, as the City re-forms after the ravages of the pandemic, the vision of these artists has become particularly potent once again.

This evening we'll celebrate NYC and its artists with the opening reception of the exhibit in the Atrium at 9 W 8th Street from 6 to 8pm. Come join us!

LULLABY Saturday, November 9
8pm-10pm
Link in bio
Lullaby is a Wunderkammer scenario expressed and presented through all forms of chaos.

The visual work of Ilaz showcases infinite layers of images we see every day, from internet to reality.
The music explores the infinite potential of sound; Alison Clancy’s psychedelic alt-pop electronica album “Psycho Tyko” fills you with distorted beats and tender vocals. And closing with Willard Morgan / Ideal Orkestra; performing a public introspection incited through the depths of emotion. #art #music #liveperformance #interactiveart #exhibition #idealorkestra #alisonclancy #ilaz

His works explore connections in general figures of representation, as well as — themes of conflict and failure, love, glory, repression, icons and taboos.

Our Story

Ideal Glass Studios is an artist-run film & TV production studio comprised of creative spaces in the East and West Village.

Founded in 2004 by native New Yorker, actor, and artist, Willard Morgan, the original space at 22 E 2nd St was transformed from a 1950’s glazier’s workshop into an independent gallery space and art collective.

The small team of creatives are dedicated to fostering a community of artists, fashion designers, writers, performers, musicians, and filmmakers. The mural walls, exhibitions, screenings and performances, transcend the norm and provide a space where alternative modes of thought and expression are encouraged and celebrated.

In 2017, Morgan added two new spaces to his Ideal Glass collection: the Ideal Pop-Up and The Mansion in the West Village, creating Ideal Glass Studios, where high-profile film, TV, music, fashion, and art vanguards gather regularly to collaborate. The original space’s DIY vibe lives on in its caring and eccentric team, encouraging creators to present their ideas clearly and express their vision freely.

The Ayaka May Komatsu Kalamity: For those that haven't hear, Ayaka May is alive and well. The entire hoax was dreamed up here. We are living in the age of fake new, so why not fake "art." Willard owes us an explanation.
