CATCH is curated with reckless delicacy by Jeff Larson, Andrew Dinwiddie and Caleb Hammons, and was awarded a prestigious Obie Award in 2015 for its contribution to the performing arts community in New York City. Conceived in a Williamsburg bar in 2003, CATCH has given stage to some of the most exciting emerging artists and avant luminaries, spreading our serious-art-in-a-serious-party vibe all over Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan and, recently, in cities across the U.S. catchseries.org
The Invisible Dog Art Center is housed in a three-story former factory building in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn. Built in 1863, our 30,000 square foot facility has been the site of various industrial endeavors – most notably a belt factory that created the famous Walt Disney invisible dog party trick, from which they take their name. The building remained dormant from the mid 1990’s to 2009 when founder, Lucien Zayan, opened The Invisible Dog.
The Invisible Dog is dedicated to the integration of forward-thinking innovation with respect for the past. In 2009 the building was restored for safety, and has been maintained over the years, but otherwise preserved in tact from its original 1863 form. The rawness of the space is vital to the space’s cultural identity.
The ground floor is used for exhibitions, performances and public events, featuring artists and curators from round the world. This floor also includes a new pop-up shop, designed by artist-in-residence Anne Mourier, conceived as a new home for independent, commercial designers in various fields. The second floor and part of the third floor are divided into over 30 artists’ studios.The third floor, luminous and spacious is used for private events, exhibitions, performances and festivals. Finally, the Glass House is a brand new, seasonal exhibition space dedicated to featuring the work of female-identified artists.
