Apartment galleries have a special place in our heart. Norte Maar’s apartment gallery at the corner of Wyckoff Avenue and Suydam Street in Bushwick, served not only as the foundation of our visual art program but also a historic role in the development of the Bushwick art scene from 2006-2016. Alternative art spaces play a vital role in facilitating conversation, building community, and inspiring creative collaborations. Artist Lynn Sullivan hosts regular pop-up exhibitions in her studio and home.

Norte Maar, the innovative arts organization that played an integral role in creating the vibrant Bushwick arts scene, is relocating to the Cypress Hills area of East New York.
From humble beginnings, curator Jason Andrew and choreographer Julia K. Gleich started Norte Maar in 2004 as a way of promoting collaborations in our time. In celebration of our 10 year anniversary we are looking back, admiring our various projects and highlighting some significant articles and reviews.
