KAJE was formed in the space between two artists’ studios as a dedication to the intermingling of attitudes, imaginations, and artwork. Over time, KAJE operations have evolved to achieve greater autonomy as an outright entity, but our mission remains—to support creative impulses that are difficult to define, and in need of participatory testing grounds. KAJE seeks to invoke new styles of audienceship through nontraditional programming, and a spirit of spontaneity. Results range from dance to dinners, to books and their launches, and sculpture and drumming, research and meetings, and screenings and speaking and saxophone, indoor and outdoor moods, and language.
Access to unconventional outlets within New York City continues to challenge artists, across disciplines. In a climate where the vast majority of exhibition making is market driven, we envision KAJE as a place to suspend belief, and develop experimental voices beyond the anxieties of that marketplace.
KAJE is located at 74 15th St. Brooklyn, NY 11215.
KAJE programming occurs through a variety of visual, virtual, public, private and participatory styles of engagement. We believe every citizen of New York ought to have a connection with meaningful creative programs, and we are committed to specializing pathways to make such accessibility possible. Entry to our main exhibition space is at grade with the street level, and free of physical barriers. Our mezzanine is not readily ADA accessible, but alternative means of entry can be arranged upon request.
