When you open the door to 17 Frost, you never know exactly what is going to be happening inside. From famous street artists holding a panel on the avant movement of the 80's, to a fashion photoshoot, to a band practice, to a film screening, the space is the quintessence of multi use. Three distinct rooms run through the gallery, each serving different purposes. The front room is ideal for gallery openings, video production, and social events. The middle room has three large screens accompanied by projectors for screenings and other creative use. It also has sound equipment, instruments, an elevated sound desk, and lighting desk. Depending on the occasion, it can also be used as a green room for an event in the main room. The space furthest to the back is primarily a recording studio boasting high quality vintage analog gear. One of the last open format studio spaces in Williamsburg, the space has high ceilings, configurable furniture and stages, amps, lights, a recording studio, and an abundance of creative energy.
There are a number of regulars that come through the space routinely, helping to maintain the gallery and brainstorm events that could take place in collaboration with other artists. Some of these regulars are pioneers of New York City street art and graffiti, as well as musical legends from the punk era. Additionally, fresh faces and artists frequent the space, adding new perspectives and ideas to the mixture. The best way to experience Frost is to come through yourself not only to see what it is, but also to see what you could make of it.
