A Guide to the Field: Storefront Practices in the Social Realm is a project gallery in Mountaindale, deep in the New York Catskills. Curated by J. Morgan Puett, Ambassador of Entanglement of Mildred’s Lane, in collaboration with Abby Lutz, Minister of Strategic Possibilities. It is a project gallery devoted to showing, making and collecting socially and politically sensitive artwork, including; textiles, sculpture, clothing, furniture, photography, painting, ceramics – fine art in the everyday – set in topic-driven installations (swarmings) by artists working in the social sphere. Visitors experience a storefront apartment environment, as an interactive installation of making, cooking, cleaning, playing, resting, reading, thinking – being.

Current topic: FACTORY

Factory is a show hearkening to earliest sites of production – the household –  evolving into what we understand as the industrial revolution; on to the rapid evaporations of a technological 21st-century. Here, artists are factories, as if coming full circle. Creative workers and thinkers tell stories, weave histories, sport reflections, make demonstrations, share collections, manufacture clothing and hold events throughout the spring exhibition. 


Our reading room has expanded from the under-the-stairs space into a factory lounge. In residence, One Grand Books’ Aaron Hicklin, stitched with Mildred's Lane characters.
