Art in General – Winter Party

Art in General’s ‘Dance Party’ on December 11, at {TEMP} Art Space in Tribeca, will feature video installations, DJ Lucas Walters, an open bar, seasonal refreshments, and artist-designed party favors. A selection of Art in General’s publications and Limited Editions will also be available for purchase.

Prior to the ‘Party’ there is a VIP cocktail reception and private tour of Jill Magid’s critically acclaimed exhibition, Woman With Sombrero, from 7-8pm at Art in General.

All proceeds benefit Art in General’s exhibitions and programs, supporting the production and presentation of new work in a non-commercial setting–all of which is crucial to the continued growth and vibrancy of culture in NYC.



Last month, unsigned rapper Nipsey Hussle made $100,000 by selling 1,000 copies of his latest mixtape, Crenshaw, for $100 each. Hussle – real name Ermias Asghedom – shifted every single CD in less than 24 hours at a pop-up store in his hometown of L.A. (Jay Z bought 100 copies.)

“One of my mentors suggested I read a book called Contagious,” says Asghedom, speaking to me in New York. “In the second chapter, a restaurant owner created the first $100 Philly cheese steak and got ridiculed but got a ton of prominent people interested.”
