Proteus Gowanus

Tammy and Sasha came into the studio a few weeks ago to talk with me about the gallery they run together, Proteus Gowanus.  I originally heard of Proteus Gowanus through their Fixers Collective, a group that meets at the gallery during which people come together and, well, try to fix things.  The Fixers Collective is just one of many projects-in-residence at Proteus Gowanus, amongst others such as the Morbid Anatomy Library, The Writhing Society, and the Hall of Gowanus.

In Greek myth, Proteus was a sea god with the power to shape-shift in order to avoid answering questions.  With all of its eclectic eccentricities, one cannot really define what Proteus Gowanus is.  According to Tammy and Sasha, it is an interdisciplinary gallery and reading room, but it seems as though that doesn’t even do it.
