Sneak a Peek is a street exhibition that features video art works displayed on TVs inside apartments. These TVs are placed behind the windows facing West 22nd Street in New York City.
What happens behind closed doors and curtains is always a great source of curiosity for people. Sneak a Peek sets free this desire and digs into this curiosity by allowing viewers to experience it without the fear of voyeurism. Sneak a Peek offers an innovative way of exhibiting video art works and reaching a wider audience who come upon the work by chance. By the virtue of this project, the passersby are viewers of the works, and the residents who are participating with their windows are the exhibitors.
Sneak a Peek takes place on 22nd Street between 8th and 10th Avenues, right next to the blue-chip gallery area of New York, and will be on view when the nearby galleries close their doors to public. The venues are the ground floor at 325, basement of 326, third floor of 333, first floor of 424 West 22nd Street, and the ground floor at 197 Ninth Avenue, in the windows of Chelsea Frames.
Sneak a Peek is presented as part of a festival of final projects curated by the inaugural class of SVA MA Curatorial Practice.
