7. Secret Project Robot, Bushwick

Born out of a desire for alternative and subculture representations of art and music, Secret Project Robot, on 1186 Broadway, was established in 2004 as a gallery and not for profit artist run space. Its self-sustaining environment provides a venue for art installations, music, performance art, craft nights, gatherings, and dance parties in which experience is valued above all else.

From the outdoor sculpture garden and bar to the indoor exhibitions and “special projects,” Secret Project Robot “seeks to build a strong artist, musician, and intellectual community as a tangible way to mitigate the feelings of alienation brought on by tyranny and a failing world order created by the neo-liberal capitalist system.”
