Cooler Gallery "envisioned a show wherein the selected group of artists would each create one piece … an Urn. Urns often have a base, a chamber, a thinned neck, and a cover – but the name refers more to function than form. Urns have been dated back to about 7000 BC and been used to house human ashes, possessions of the deceased, or used in burial rituals.

Each piece would be an extension of the artist’s own body of work and be arranged throughout Cooler Gallery. Gallery patrons will encounter the works lining the walls of the room – evoking a burial chamber."

Cooler Gallery is an art gallery within a repurposed industrial icebox outside the Brooklyn Navy Yard — the physical border of large art, design, and manufacturing communities. The curation aims to reflect the essence of this intersection.
