Triple Candie

Triple Candie is a phantom-like institution run by internationally-noted art historians Shelly Bancroft and Peter Nesbett.

Founded in Harlem in 2001, it produces exhibitions about art but largely devoid of it. Its primary purpose since late 2005 has been to explore the possibilities of exhibition-making as a truly alternative, critical practice. The New York Times once characterized Triple Candie as “Manhattan’s only truly alternative alternative space,” and Domus described it as “one of the most mysterious and creative institutions on the contemporary scene.”

From 2001 to 2010, Triple Candie operated a series of galleries. When it left Harlem in 2011, it began guest-producing exhibitions for museums in the United States and Europe, first from Philadelphia and now from Washington, DC.

Triple Candie is in Prague courtesy of a collaboration between the Jindřich Chalupecký Society and the MeetFactory.

"Art is a fine large word. It shares with liberty the task of serving as an excuse for many crimes." --
