Pop-up Studio Show

María Vasquez Boyd and Michael Buckley

Michael Buckley and María Vasquez Boyd offer a glimpse of their studio space as they bring ongoing work into the Trap Gallery.
What am I looking at, what was the artist thinking about, where is this going, why does it matter, do you respond to anything you see here?

Come share as a viewer similar questions we ask ourselves as we figure out this thing called art.
