Melanie Flood

I’ve just returned from a fabulous evening out at Melanie Flood Projects.

Melanie Flood Projects is an artists salon specializing in contemporary photography based in the Brooklyn home of Melanie Flood. The gallery brings artists and art lovers together in a space that juxtaposes the aesthetic dialogue of fine art with the haphazard and personal existence of the domestic setting, highlighting contrasts and commonalities in unexpected ways. The aim of Melanie Flood Projects is to create a fresh and informal meeting point for looking at, reflecting on, and talking about art.

I have been to several events here and they never seem to disappoint. The opening tonight was titled “Under the Glass Bell, A dream” with photographs by Grace Kim, but the events are usually about much more than the photographs on the wall. By opening up her home to the art community, Melanie allows for a relaxed environment that is very conducive to meeting people, which believe it or not, is actually hard to find in New York.

Highlight of the evening was meeting Phil Toledano, who after watching this interview of him and then meeting him in person made me fall in love with him a little bit.
