X Initiative Art Project


X Initiative is a not-for-profit artistic endeavor which challenges members of the contemporary art community to think about new possibilities for experiencing and producing contemporary art. Organized into four seasonal phases during its year-long existence, the initiative will feature durational artist interventions, site-specific projects, historical in-depth exhibitions, one-night performances, lectures and weekly events.


We attended the Phase I party last weekend, which was filled with installations from artist Mika Tajima (top image), brightly lit staircases by Dan Flavin and projections of films from Derek Jarman (above). We heard there was an exciting exhibit on the roof as well, but it was super crowded so we didn't get a chance to see it. Please let us know how it is. It is open to the public Wednesday through Saturday 11-6pm
