Featured artists include Adam Zhu, Aeja Monet, Alex Petty, Ally Bo, Andrew Durgin-Barnes, Brie Moreno, Carolina Lindberg, Chito, Chris Lloyd, Devin Beck, Dylan Kraus, Ellie Andrews Gonzalez, Hank Reavis, Hunter Ney, Jason Fox, Justin Hager, Michelle Guintu Petty, Noah Trimble, Nick Atkins, Rob Brackett, Ronan McGee, Sara Yukiko, Shana Sadeghi-Ray, Sharif Farrag, Ten Yung Han, Victor Morales, and more. Home, to be openly interpreted as feelings of familiarity, a place of physical solitude or ground of new creativity and documentation. The exhibition will commence on Friday, March 27th and new works, as well as artist processes will be on view daily through the @whaam.whaam Instagram for a three weeks duration through April 17th.
Portions of the proceeds from HOME will go to Bowery Mission to aid in providing emergency care: safe shelters, essential programs, and nutritional to-go meals for New York City’s most vulnerable population during Covid-19, as they need our help more than ever.
WHAAM! was established in 2017 as a cultural club to promote New York City sub-cultures through creative lenses spanning literature and visual art. Since it's opening, WHAAM! has hosted a series of monthly book talks. In 2019, WHAAM! opened its physical space in downtown New York, with the aim to foster the next wave of artists through literature and visual programming.
