Celebrating the opening of Outside Gallery with our second show this year, Insert Blanc General Projects is excited to present a group of artists who have worked with the press in the past few years. This stellar group of artists are particularly excited to explore the alternative exhibition space we've been developing thru Outside Gallery, a new exhibition platform, literally outside in the side/front yard of our house in Lincoln Heights.

What can we do with some of the more obvious spaces available to us? What can you do with your front or back yard or even your side yard? or your roof? These are some of the central questions we are posing with Outside Gallery. We're thinking about urban and suburban architecture and the spaces and opportunities provided. As the availability of aesthetic space is stretched by under-development of the support structures for the contemporary artist, what can be done in your own yard? Like many others these days, we're opening up our house and our living space for art and artists.

Outside Gallery, a project of Insert Blanc Press General Projects is co-curated by Chris Niemi & Mathew Timmons and seeks to create a new exhibition platform, literally outside in the side/front yard of our house in Lincoln Heights. Exploring the differences between institutional or traditional galleries and the kind of aesthetic space many people have access to in their own front yard, Outside Gallery provides a new platform for contemporary art. We held our first show, NUSTACHUS by John Zane Zappas, in February of 2015 and looking towards the future, we have a solo show by Kristin Cammermeyer opening in late September and another solo show with Michelle Carla Handel opening in January 2016.
