This might be the most delicious collection of art we've ever seen. On Oct. 22, New York staple Katz's Delicatessen will open the doors to their recently acquired adjacent property, The Space, which will act as a pop-up gallery and merch shop. The Space will show "deli-inspired pieces" from a group of artists that rotates each month. Yum.
The first roster of artists includes Hanksy, Rich Tu, Baron Von Fancy, Kenzo Minami, and HYP-INC. Jake Dell, the fifth-generation owner of the deli, told Bowery Boogie, "The Space will serve as a tribute not just to the restaurant’s past and present connection to the neighborhood, but to the people who continue to live, work, and create art in all its forms right here on the Lower East Side." Meat, art, and community—what's not to love?
The Space will open with a kick-off party Oct. 22 7-10 p.m.
