Art or Idiocy? has been remiss to not announce the passing of PartsUnknown Gallery in the Pilsen neighborhood. August 11 marked the closing of their final show, Nine Lives. Featuring nine artists, with graffiti backgrounds, and perhaps hinting at a future for the gallery in some incarnation. The beautiful, but seemingly cursed, space of 645 West 18th Street has seen two occupants pass before PartsUnknown. The details of which have gone down in the sordid lore of the neighborhood. So who’s up to the challenge of being number four?
Nine Lives included the work of Michael Genovese, Jerry Inscoe, Thor, Dan Ezra Lang, Anthony Lewellen, Remi Morgan, Caleb Neelon, Chucho Rodriguez & Chris Silva
