About The New Collective at Project Studios
The New Collective at Project Studios is the formation of a new visual art collective based in the historic R. Neumann and Company leather goods factory in Hoboken, New Jersey. It will utilize spaces and equipment housed within Project Studios, an art services and studio management company with 30,000 sq. ft. of studio space in the building. It will include access to the ceramics, photography, printmaking, and wood studios, as well as an open-floor plan art studio space and a 900 sq. ft. gallery space—The Project Studios Gallery. The collective should raise the career profiles of its members by providing opportunities to both create and exhibit new works.
Project Studios provides space and support for musicians, visual artists, and creatives working in the design, fashion, and photography industries. Founded by artist Nick De Pirro in 2006, the project has been an important feature in the artistic landscape of the greater New York City area, and with the announcement of The New Collective, it will soon provide facilities and collaborative opportunities to more artists than ever before via a membership model which will grant access to equipment and spaces already housed in our shop spaces.
