The Underbelly Project
In 2009 PAC and Workhorse started a project in an abandoned subway station in New York City. Over the course of a year and a half they invited over 100 contemporary artists to leave their creative mark inside the station. Working illegally, the project aimed to document a cross section of contemporary art, free of the commercial restrictions of the traditional gallery environment. Once the project had come to an end, the entrance was sealed trapping the art inside and creating an ephemeral time capsule. The project received praise internationally, including a front-page article from The New York Times. The Underbelly Project is currently turning heads in Miami during Basel and SCOPE with an exhibition of brand new work from artists who participated in both the New York and Paris projects during Miami Art Basel and SCOPE.
