Transgressing Lands:
Eleven Contemporary Artists Reimagine a Horizon

We are thrilled to announce our next upcoming exhibition Transgressing Lands: Eleven Contemporary Artists Reimagine a Horizon featuring work by Jeannine Bardo, Nancy Cohen, Cristina de Gennaro, Deborah Jack, Natalie Moore, Itty Neuhaus, Nazanin Noroozi, Lina Puerta, Corinne Teed, Elizabeth Velazquez, and Letha Wilson, curated by A.E. Chapman. Reclaiming the horizon and re-establishing it as a mode of orientation and possibility, these artists explore the potential that landscape offers both to locate ourselves within specificities of finite time and place as well as reveal entry points into infinitude. Each artist presents their own stakes including the role of memory and collectivity in containing vanished landscapes; the new terrifying sublime of disaster brought about by escalating climate change, displacement, and warfare; explorations of mindfulness, presence, and care manifested through close and attentive looking; revisions of colonial narratives; and aspects of entropy and renewal inherent within all existence.

Opening Reception: Thursday, February 29th, 6:30-830pm

February 29th – March 28th, 2024

Gallery Hours: Tuesday – Saturday: 1 – 6 pm


We believe in providing equitable access to exhibit space, creative resources, and mentorship. Our aim includes promoting diversity within contemporary art and community arts programming. The Boiler is a space dedicated to supporting artists who share in our vision. We believe creating a hub for community engagement within the arts is essential. The Boiler is committed to nurturing emerging artists while continuously celebrating established Artists.


Our ongoing Art Education program “Steam Works” through ELM Foundation, exemplifies our “Arts Community Empowering Community Arts” endeavor by providing students the opportunity to learn directly from each exhibiting artist. We hope to inspire the next generation of artists and creatives through free workshops and classes that focus on the specialty, media, or discipline of the current Boiler Artist’s works. With each unique experience, we strive to promote the transformative power of art.


The Boiler plays host to a variety of events. We selectively partner with local businesses, institutions, schools, musicians, and brands that share our values. All activities held in The Boiler, go to fund programming for the kids of ELM Foundation. The Boiler space, when activated by creative communities, gathers a special kind of steam, empowerment.



The Boiler, a historic industrial space in the heart of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, was transformed into a gallery and site of a burgeoning art scene with the efforts of Joe Amrhein of Pierogi Gallery in the early 2000s The vision of the space was to push the boundaries of what a white box gallery could be. The Boiler quickly became known as a space for artists who wanted to push the boundaries of fine art.


The Boiler, while no longer affiliated with Pierogi Gallery, continues to preserve the legacy with its non-profit initiatives and pushes forward; utilizing the space for cutting-edge contemporary art while integrating and expanding its programming on a larger scale and promoting arts education in the community.
