The Ugly Art Room seeks to "challenge the white box gallery tradition by curating exhibits in unique and unusual spaces." As a manifestation of this mission statement, UAR has constructed a 6' x 6' x 6' structure on Bedford Avenue in Brooklyn. This claustrophobic cube houses the miniature works of 17 artists. Each artist has been given 5" x 5" wood panels pre-drilled with a hole in each. Completed works are bolted to the interior walls of the "gallery" and the public is welcome to enter the cube to be a part of the unsettlingly awkward "opening rejection."
