A Small Pond Under the Blue Sky has landed!

It's been over year since we closed our East Village storefront, but instead of lounging by the pool, we've been hard at work compiling this compendium of all of our past projects and we are so excited to finally be able to share it all with you!!!

Book Preview:
September 15–16th, 2023

Book Launch Party:
October 13, 2023


A Small Pond Under the Blue Sky is a reflection and celebration of the 98 artist collaborations, through 37 exhibitions, performances, and workshops. A record of the pop-ups and product editions conceptualized and presented in our East Village space and beyond from 2016 to 2022. This anthology includes interviews with artists collaborators Aria McManus, Tim Simonds, and Lu Zhang, and personal reflections on collaborations and creativity with the founder and director Wen-You Cai. This collection of thoughts guide readers through a contemplation of creative experiments with art and the everyday.

This book was edited by Wen-You Cai and Lin King, and designed by Panny Chayapumh.
First edition of 500
