DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAMMING:
Once Wunderkammer Company was incorporated as a non-profit in 2007 and granted 501(c)3 status through the IRS in 2008, we embarked on a number of small curatorial and community outreach projects that ultimately allowed us to build a strong following prior to opening up a physical space, and even provided a teeny tiny amount of seed capital to build our more robust programming.
+EX: New York City and Chicago: These two exhibitions concluded with "EX"'s final exhibition in our debut set of shows in the gallery in January 2013. This project involved over two dozen artists from around the nation (and beyond) and took place in the International Arts Movement (IAM) space in NYC and in Carousel Space in Chicago in March and May 2012, respectively.
