What's it like to live in an art gallery? Walk the hallways of Six Hundred and you'll understand.
The Gallery at Six Hundred West Main celebrates both up-and-coming and established artists from around the world. The private gallery offers residents a chance to live up close and personal with a selection of annually rotating contemporary work. Design Director and Curator, Ivy Naté, and Co-Curator, Caroline Butin, have selected artists who push formal and thematic boundaries in line with Six Hundred’s mission. These artists challenge cultural norms and our perceived realities through storytelling, memory, and a range of media.
Ivy Naté, Design Director and Curator of Six Hundred West Main, uses universally recognizable objects in non-traditional ways. Whether she’s designing furniture, an apartment, a building, or a mixed media installation, her work reimagines materials, bringing them to life in unexpected ways and making space for authentic inspiration.
