Another Bushwick business is seeking refuge on the Lower East Side. AMO Studios opened their new storefront showroom a couple months ago at 106 Eldridge Street, applying additional pressure of gentrification on a predominantly Chinese-oriented block. The space is so subtle it’s quite easy to miss … if not for that huge red-neon ring placed in the window.
AMO Studios is a multipurpose creative venue that functions as showroom, performance space, and workspace. It was founded two years ago by a collective of six artists who needed room.
Current exhibition is a four-day group show called “Like an Autistic Sun,” which runs through May 9. It features the artwork of Anton Zolotov, Brenden Britz, Chris Martin, George Schneeman, Michael St. John, and Ryan Foerster.
AMO Studio ran a successful Kickstarter campaign during December to raise cash for a new location. The $10,000 fundraising goal was exceeded by more than a thousand bucks. Apparently the collection of cash goes toward rent at the new Eldridge Street outpost.
