In 2013, Lou Dallas woke up on a Rhode Island beach covered in glowing moonstones. After stuffing her bags, she followed the moon’s path to New York. Since then, she has continued her lawless pursuit of treasure and delight through space, time, and the realms of the fantastic, ripping through dimensions and dragging the trains of her many mantles behind her. www.loudallas.com | @LOU_DALLAS


Arsenal Contemporary is a private art center promoting dialogues between contemporary artists working in Canada and internationally. Established in Montreal in 2012, Arsenal Contemporary is the largest private art center in Canada. In 2014 the project expanded to include a location in Toronto. Arsenal Contemporary NY continues to present curatorial projects with emerging and established artists across disciplines. While Arsenal Contemporary’s Canadian spaces operate as non commercial art centers, its New York faction is a hybrid space offering 8-week commercial exhibitions, as well as collaborative projects and performances. In addition to invited projects with independent curators, museums, biennials, and commercial galleries, Arsenal Contemporary focuses on the introduction of emerging artists through their first solo exhibitions in New York. With this mandate, the art center is pleased to offer a residency program between Montreal and New York with lodging and studio space. www.arsenalcontemporary.com | @arsenalcontemporaryny
