a83, a new space for architecture, design, and art at 83 Grand Street in Soho, New York City, is pleased to announce our inaugural exhibition: Working Remotely.


Working Remotely: the exhibition
As we Zoom into the new normal, a83 hits pause to consider what it means to work remotely. Whether locked out of schools or workplaces, the coronavirus pandemic has produced all manner of dislocations. The home has become a workplace, school, studio, gym, bar... all taking place within the four corners of your computer screen. Working Remotely is an opportunity for artists and designers to share their work off-screen. a83 presses print (Ctrl+P / ⌘P) to materially document this moment and reflect on its effects in the areas of architecture and design through the production of a living archive. 

Contributors are invited to send digital submissions to a83, which will be reproduced in-house as risograph prints. Submissions will be installed in our gallery, which has been divided into a 6-foot by 6-foot grid to maintain safe social distance between the work and visitors. The show responds to emerging forms of web-based gallery viewership by providing a physical counterpart: anyone who prefers to attend remotely can subscribe to receive the show piece by piece, delivered to their mailbox. This method of image reproduction translates the virtual into the material allowing the same work on paper that is hanging on the gallery wall to also hang in your living room. A subscription includes a newsletter, which features the latest submissions, as well as conversations with a83 curators and collaborators as part of our ongoing series of epistolary interviews “Keep in Touch.” Online tours and programs will be featured on our social media accounts and website. Whether you are keeping up with business as usual, or dreaming up utopian projects that chart an ambitious course toward a new, new normal, a83 wants to know how you are Working Remotely.

Call for Work
We seek submissions from individuals, offices, organizations, and institutions that reflect work completed in 2020. We’re open to all sorts of materials, whether drawings, photographs, screenshots, emails, text messages, or any other documents of your life and work this year. Successful submissions will be printed and installed in a83’s storefront gallery space and included in our catalogue, as well as broadcast on our website, social media accounts, and mailings. To submit your work, consult the directions on our website. Original submissions should be sent via email or shipped to the gallery address listed below. (Please contact the gallery prior to shipping physical materials.) Submissions are accepted on a rolling basis.

For instructions on how to submit your work, please visit our website: a83.site

a83 is a tiny organization with a three-part mission to exhibit, publish, and promote experimental projects in architecture, art, and design.  We are caretakers of an archive, printshop, and gallery at 83 Grand Street in Soho. We produce exhibitions and installations, host workshops, and broadcast work to new audiences. We see ourselves as allies for the creative community, like a 3-legged dog standing loyally at your side, slightly wobbly.
