This modest project space sitting high atop Carnegie Hill and the border of El Barrio in Manhattan was established by Nick Lawrence (founder of DNA, LFL, and Freight+Volume) in spring of 2014 as an antidote to the hyper, market-driven systems currently ruling much of NYC and the art world at large.  A place to pause and remember that, at the end of the day, art should be viewed, contemplated, reflected upon, experienced - and enjoyed. Arts + Leisure is located between East 100th and 101st streets, opposite Church of the Life Changers and Ministries of Manhattan and a community garden.  We’re a few blocks south of El Museo del Barrio, and Moustache, El Aquila, El Paso restaurants, as well as the Lexington Social Bar. North of Joy Burger, Mt Sinai Hospital, East Harlem Childrens Center and ABV.  Stop in, relax and see the show, and check out our growing library of artist books and magazines.  We host 12 projects per year, as well as readings, performances and film/video screenings.
