“UNDER THE TABLE”
The new “Under the Table” space will function as an alternative conduit for featuring artworks that don’t fall within a specific category, or necessarily follow the set themes of the gallery.
The idea was inspired by the good old bad days of the Soviet Union, when every store imaginable operated something of a shadow economy, a black market within its walls. If you were rich, or connected, or simply could come up with a few extra rubles, the store clerk reached ‘under the table’ to give you the best product available.
With the launch of our own ‘under the table’ at Black Maria, we’re parodying all that, having fun with the idea, by presenting stuff that goes against the grain, even by our own iconoclastic standards.
