Visiting a Contemporary Art Gallery in New York

Updated: Aug 12, 2023



During my first ever trip to New York City in August 2018, I had the pleasure of visiting The Hole Gallery in the vibrant East Village. On display was an intriguing exhibition titled "Gulp," featuring the works of Drake Carr and several other artists as part of a group show called "extra," which centered around artworks depicting large women.



As a solo traveler, this trip felt incredibly brave, but I am grateful that I pushed myself to fully immerse in the city's offerings. Exploring new destinations, visiting different stores, businesses, and cafes allowed me to embrace the experience on my own terms.





The motivation behind this particular trip was deeply personal. Having recently lost my father, who had once resided in New York as a young attorney, I wanted to connect with his stories of humble beginnings in the city. As an aspiring artist myself, it felt essential to witness the creative energy that New York exudes.


In the presence of The Hole Gallery, I could feel my father's guiding and protective spirit with me. I was particularly excited to discover that they were showcasing the work of Drake Carr, an artist who was gaining significant popularity at the time. The gallery's atmosphere was undeniably cool, and the artwork itself was vibrant, engaging, and rich in color. The impeccable cleanliness and care given to the space added to its allure, providing a conducive environment for finding inspiration and nurturing one's mental well-being.

For those looking to explore contemporary art galleries, The Hole in New York City is a must-visit. Its dynamic exhibitions and commitment to showcasing interesting and engaging art make it an ideal destination for both newcomers and enthusiasts in the realm of contemporary art. Trust in the gallery's ability to consistently deliver thought-provoking and inspiring experiences, as they continue to contribute to the ever-evolving art scene.


I visited the MET while on this trip, I will post a review soon.
