Founded in 2012, P! was a free-wheeling combination of project space, commercial gallery, Mom-and-Pop-Kunsthalle, and exhibition-making machine that proposed an experimental space of display in which the radical possibilities of disparate disciplines, historical periods, and modes of production rubbed shoulders. From its first headquarters in a Chinatown storefront at 334 Broome St, New York, P! mounted over forty exhibitions and offsite projects from 2012–2017. Over the course of its first five year program, which included artists, designers, architects, composers, musicians, curators, writers, and more, the Chinatown storefront’s appearance, physical space, visual identity—and even its name—changed periodically. In 2018, P! opened a yearlong program called K, in collaboration with KW Institute for Contemporary Art. Calling itself a “workshop for exhibition making,” K, constructed its komma-delimited program accumulatively over the course of one year. From 2019–2022, P! operated a periodic program in Berlin and online.

In 2019, Bard College’s Center for Curatorial Studies acquired P!’s archives. You can access a finding aid to the archive here.
