The Tension In Between, A Landing Jam in Greenpoint, by Hrag Vartanian for Hyperallergic

"I’ve already expressed my affection for apartment shows but hallway — or landing, to be more precise — shows I’ve been mum about … until now. This past weekend curator Martin Esteves pulled off a smart, small pop-up exhibition on a friend’s landing on Dupont Street in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.

Organized under the auspices of the always interesting Ugly Art Room, the one-day only exhibition, titled Landing Jam, featured the work of eight artists (Erica Baclawski, Joe Ballweg, Erik Dalzen, Rosy Keyser, David Malek, Douglas Melini, Jamisen Ogg and Audra Wolowiec) and was surprisingly well-suited for the compact space both in scale and concept."
