Today, three years after the Capricious curatorial and publishing outfit closed its project space in Williamsburg, it announced it will open a gallery on the fifth floor of 88 Eldridge Street, the building that is also home to the David Lewis Gallery and a still-to-come Miguel Abreu space.
The plan is for Capricious 88, as the gallery is being termed, to stage five shows a year. It will open its first show on Nov. 17, a group show of work featured in issue number 14 of its journal. (They’ve been publishing throughout their exhibiting hiatus.) The artists on deck are: Nicolai Howalt, Anders Petersen, Susan Surface, Collin LaFleche, Peter Croteau and Anne Hall.
Pretty remarkable how the the Lower East Side gallery district just keeps growing.
