Pure Vision Arts is an exhibition space and art studio that serves artists with Asperger’s Syndrome, Autism, Down Syndrome and Cerebral Palsy. This month, the gallery at Ace Hotel New York hosts Public Access: Selections from Pure Vision Arts, a group exhibition of works culled from PVA painters, sculptors and craftspeople.

Every artist in the show is an autodidact, honing their craft with inner compass alone, and the show is a testament to its value. Playfulness, still life, obsession and longing — these works unfold like colored scrawls from a secret notebook.

The Party Wall at MoMA PS1 weaves together the ‘bones’ and ‘blanks’ —  bi-products of skateboard manufacture, subverting the drab conformism of Big Skateboarding to help people party. CODA, the project’s creators, won this year’s Young Architects’ Program with this post-industrial shade source and slip n’ slide, up at PS1 in the wilds of Long Island City throughout Warm Up season. PS1 comrades stopped by to dress our gallery space at Ace Hotel New York with some party wall paraphernalia — stop by if you’re in the neighborhood.

To kickoff our LGBTQ pride celebrations this June, we’re exhibiting Current Issues: The Gay Blade Vol. 1, No. 1-6, 1969 in the gallery space at Ace Hotel New York. First published in October of 1969 as a single-sheet, hand-distributed newsletter appearing in gay bars around D.C., it’s the longest-running LGBTQ paper in the United States, still running as The Washington Blade and named by the Times as “one of the most influential publications written for a gay audience.” In its early issues, we find reports on civil rights issues and police harassment, roommate and job referral services, invitations to community dinners, legal advice and classifieds ads. Grown from the vitality and perseverance of queer culture and community, The Gay Blade helped citizens organize in their struggle for equality, while both supporting and documenting the mundanities of everyday life and survival.
To see the full selection of early issues, and read more about the Blade (unrelated to Zorro), stop by the gallery and pick up your own copy of our handmade zine featuring some of our favorite issues.
Stay tuned for more on pride this month here.

Look! It’s all the places we are! And though born and raised here, today marks the first we’ve ever realized that Oregon does indeed look like a flying piece of toast. These are fifty state mottos illustrated by fifty artists who grew up in the state for which they have raised brush to canvas (or cursor to squiggle tool as it were). The show is called Fifty & Fifty, and it’s curated by our pal Dan Cassaro, in the gallery at Ace Hotel New York. We’re having a reception tomorrow evening, December 18, from 7-10pm. Afterparty really depends on who shows up so make sure it’s you. If you can’t hang out tomorrow night, you can see the show will be up through February 1. Ever upward!

It may have piqued your interest throughout the last twelve months as we posted selections from our online Impossible Project x Ace gallery — and if you entered photos, thank you for fueling this incredible beast that inspired us daily. We’ve now selected a couple dozen images to be included in our physical gallery show One Year In — crowd-sourced and a thing of beauty — at Ace Hotel New York. We’re throwing a little party with Impossible tonight in the lobby to celebrate, and you can see the show in our gallery space through December 14.


Transformation, presented by W Magazine and Hipstamatic, is an exhibit of fashion photos shot and submitted by an image-obsessed diaspora on the WMag FreePak, a limited edition collaborative lens. On display in the Ace Hotel New York gallery space through November 12, we hope it will inspire you to catch the light this winter.
