A $7 million dollar townhouse on the market in Greenwich Village was transformed into a gallery and pop-up shop in NYC last night. Dubbed “Outlaw Art”, and curated by photographer and producer Janine Outlaw, the show was a group exhibition of photographs, paintings and video with artists John Patrick Salisbury, Saskia, Swedish trio Marcus, Frode & Igor in a property managed by Town Real Estate.

Outlaw, former photo editor of Blaze, The New York Times, Fortune, The Village Voice, and New York Magazine, came up with the idea after realizing that her real estate friends had property that sat vacant while waiting to be sold. After convincing her friends at Town Real Estate, Outlaw mounted a show that was reminiscent of the underground parties and raves of the 1980s and 1990s New York. 

“My whole life has been about finding something and someone to relate to,” Outlaw told lalettredelaphotographie.com before the show’s launch. “New York is the most magical place. You can go to a house party, and at this house party and there could be a drug dealer, a politician, a graffiti writer, a doctor, an escort, and a prince from some Saudi Arabian royalty, and a kid from the Bronx and two Wall Street business guys in one room. And in some small minute way, I want to have those things come together. They probably all appreciate some form of art and a couple of them could buy this gorgeous apartment and all the art in it. The common interest is art but everyone enjoys comfort and beauty so it lessens the differences between us.”

Outlaw Art is available for viewing by appointment only. For more information on the show visit Outlawart.org. After the break, images from the show.
