The Base 12 Project is an experimental venture run by Apostrophe NYC. The project groups together 12 emerging artists in a quasi-collective that works together to navigate the contemporary art world and forge an alternate narrative to how work is shown, experienced and sold.
ABOUT THE APOSTROPHE NYC
Apostrophe NYC is an iconoclastic art gallery that works personally with artists to create art experiences and careers freed from tradition.
Founded in 2012 by brothers Sei and Ki Smith, Apostrophe NYC began as a renegade art gallery and underground music venue in Bushwick, Brooklyn. After a year of housing and stimulating New York City’s emerging artists, musicians, and culture rats, Apostrophe NYC was forcibly shuttered by New York’s Finest. Without an address, Apostrophe NYC continues to throw pop-up events and art shows that push the boundaries of expected experiences. Currently Apostrophe NYC and their Base 12 artists have an 8000sqft space through a 1 year residency program at Mana Contemporary. Since 2016 Apostrophe NYC's main focus has been their Base 12 project.
