First and foremost, the motivating factor of Gallery No. 17 is collaboration and creative freedom. Artists are the directors of their own exhibitions with the assistance and guidance from the curator.
With a single flat, white wall, measuring 17' wide and 15' tall, artists are welcome to install their work in any way they see fit, within reason. Gallery No. 17's professional installers hail from such revered institutions as AICON Gallery, MoMA PS1, and Gagosian NYC. 
Past events have been generously sponsored by Mixtape Coffee.
