"Parker’s Box was launched in 2000 with the aim of tapping into the creative energy of Brooklyn, while providing heightened visibility or first exposure in the New York art world for a number of artists from overseas. The gallery has featured the work of Brooklyn artists like Steven Brower and Tim Laun while also showing significant emerging European artists such as Virginie Barré, Simon Faithfull, Caroline McCarthy, Gerard Williams and Bruno Peinado.
The gallery is committed to championing the work of both American and overseas artists whose practice and attitudes are innovatory while being instilled with curiosity towards both the mechanisms of the contemporary world, and the mechanisms that can operate within a work of art.
Parker’s Box has also gained recognition for a number of experimental projects, involving the work of gallery artists and others, such as the Paris-Brooklyn Exchange project (2001), or “Up In Arms”, an exhibition of weapons made by artists that coincided with both the 2003 Armory Show, as well as the invasion of Iraq by the USA (included Andisheh Avini, Chris Burden, Tim Laun, Philippe Meste, Sylvie Reno, and Tom Sachs). Another such memorable event was IAM5! (Parker’s International Art Market) in 2005. In this inverted Art Fair, artists represented their galleries and manned their own stands. (included projects by Nayland Blake, Diana Cooper, David Hammons, Oliver Herring, Brian Maguire, Joyce Pensato, Guy Richards Smit, Cheyney Thompson, Nari Warde)."
