Gallery 98 is the online store for the website 98Bowery.com. Paralleling the website, the gallery traces a similar path through the art world of the 1970s and 1980s. But the gallery is distinct in that it is a place for people who actually want to own a piece of the past that the website documents. Here collectors will find historically significant items — objects, photographs, and works on paper — that they can purchase.
The inventory of Gallery 98 is particularly rich in art and ephemera connected with the artist group Collaborative Projects Inc. (Colab) and two affiliated art spaces, Fashion Moda in the South Bronx, and ABC No Rio in the Lower East Side.
Special exhibitions focus on artists who first emerged in the 1970s and 1980s.
Gallery 98 and the 98 Bowery website have been created by Marc H. Miller, artist, curator, writer and publisher.
