Julia Draganovic & Manon Slome, No Longer Empty
It is no longer a secret that times of economic stress can afford opportunities for artists and curators who like to work with artists, especially when it comes to space. Curatorial entrepreneurs Manon Slome and Julia Draganovic, both veterans of the real estate failure that was the Chelsea Art Museum, discuss their re-birth with No Longer Empty, a moveable artist feast that has already transformed spaces on Governor's Island, an old Tower records store, the Chelsea Hotel and several overlooked lots into thriving temporary artist sites.
