Labs New Artists


In 2017, Labs Gallery presented its first summer group show, Labs New Artists, benefiting Red Hook Labs Education and Jobs Initiative. The exhibition featured work by twenty-five emerging, international photographers, unrepresented by a gallery or an agency and selected from Red Hook Labs’ open call by a jury of industry leaders.

Red Hook Labs is dedicated to supporting this impressive group of artists, showing personal bodies of work that apply fresh techniques and aesthetics to the photographic medium. The exhibition explored contemporary cultural aesthetics, and presented provocative image making. Labs New Artists celebrated the achievements of this diverse ensemble of exceptional visionaries.

All Labs profits go to our 501(c)3, Red Hook Labs Education and Jobs Initiative.
