Culture Lab runs a nonprofit art gallery providing a full calendar of monthly exhibitions by emerging and mid-career artists working in visual, installation, interactive, digital and video art. Our exhibitions are often complemented by a diverse series of multidisciplinary performances as well as artist talks, panel discussions & workshops. “The Lab '' collaborates with local organizations, individual artists and curators to bring in new ideas, develop cohesive monthly programming and participatory events, with a goal of promoting the cultural growth of our community. 


Currently “The Lab” programs between 20 - 36 exhibitions annually with an average of over 1000 visitors monthly, and does not take a commission from the art we sell!


Our programming is unique because of the proposal structure we work with as well as our open-door policy towards community volunteers and outside organizations seeking space for different projects. For almost all the exhibitions we have an “Open Call” where all artists have the opportunity to submit their artwork for consideration.


Our team works hard to bring thoughtful, beautiful and groundbreaking programming to Queens.
