1628 Ltd., a curated co-working space that is also a nontraditional gallery with quarterly art exhibitions located in Downtown Cincinnati. We partner with local artists, private art collectors, and arts organizations for exhibitions. We are currently seeking artists to apply for our coming exhibition, Leftovers, an art exhibition about food!
Everyone must eat, and everyone has their own relationships with food. This can mean cultural tradition, where food plays an integral role. This can be what your mother always served when she had guests over, carefully laying out a tray of sweets and drinks. This can mean what snacks you picked up on your way home from school, or your hangover breakfast with friends, or what takeout you get when you are home alone.
The aesthetics of Leftovers will embody a playful but vital relationship with food. The work should be colorful and bold, while understanding that food is a key part of individual identity.
If you are interested in seeing the space before applying to the exhibition, please refer to this 1628 blog post. Here you will find a virtual tour of our current exhibition.
