Laura Shaeffer/Home Gallery

February 24th, 2011

Laura Schaeffer has made an artist practice out of running alternative spaces. After many years running a commercial gallery space, Schaeffer decided to experiment with the integration of art exhibitions into the domestic space, and Home Gallery of Hyde Park was born. Since 2007 Schaeffer has been exhibiting the works of painters, sculptors, and printmakers in her intimate town house. Recently, Schaeffer has turned her energies toward invigorating vacant store fronts throughout Hyde Park with her nomadic curatorial project, The Op Shop. Schaeffer is quoted as finding inspiration for her curatorial practices in the squatter galleries of late 80’s Berlin. The Op Shop is now in its 3rd iteration in Hyde Park, while exhibitions at Home Gallery have been temporally suspended.
