WORK/SPACE : a Black Gotham Experience
192 Front Street between John and Fulton Streets New York, NY 10038
Made possible by an artist residency with Lower Manhattan Cultural Council and support from The Howard Hughes Corporation, WORK/SPACE transports Black Gotham Experience’s visual storytelling into an engaging, multifaceted space in the heart of the Seaport District. View art from our graphic novel at a scale never before seen and go behind the scenes of how it’s created. Join us for lively events like Nerdy Thursdays and TALK/BACK. Page through the books and archival materials that inspire our team, then bring home collectibles and fashion inspired by Black Gotham Experience. Located at 192 Front Street, our WORK/SPACE is in the footprint of where the people and events central to Black Gotham Experience unfolded centuries ago. Come explore with us.
Happy Hour + Book Club = your next Thursday hangout curated by Kamau Ware and GoodWill. People are encouraged to discuss the book of the month while enjoying music by guest DJs and complimentary signature cocktails inspired by Black Gotham Experience (The Geneva Club, Caesar’s Run, and Kofi’s Fire).
Join us for the Caesar’s Rebellion walking tour, which leaves at 7:30pm from Nerdy Thursdays and explores the hidden history of New York.
6-8pm on Thursdays – November 2, November 9, November 16, November 30, December 7, December 14
