Despite its title, and with the exception of Jared Buckhiester’s
watercolor typology of half-naked football players and one magisterially
constructed, transparently explicit Tom of Finland sketch, none of
the work in this taut summer grouping of obsessive drawing and collage
is particularly concerned with evasion or desire—except insofar as
anything can be an evasion, and everything, once you’re looking for
it, is desire.

Feature Inc. is a contemporary
art gallery exhibiting painting, drawing, photography and sculpture
by established and emerging American and international artists
in New York City since 1988.
Feature opened on April Fool’s
Day 1984, in a second floor space at 340 West Huron St., Chicago.
In August 1988, the gallery moved to NYC and opened in October
at 484 Broome St. Soon after the move, the 340 W. Huron building
burned to the ground; Feature escaped just in time. Feature relocated
to 76 Greene St. in September 1993, and became Feature Inc. in
January 1994. The move to 530 W. 25 St. occurred in October 1999.
At all the aforementioned locations, Feature contained two or
more exhibition spaces, so that several exhibitions could be presented
Feature Inc. reincarnated in September
2008 at 276 Bowery, delighted to be back downtown, however two
days after opening the crash happened and life there was short
Mid-December 2009, Feature reopened
in its sixth space at 131 Allen St., still on the lower east side.
For the first time in all its lives, Feature has only one exhibition
space. There is as well a wall painting program for the interior
wall of the entrance to the building. Life goes on.
Summer Hours: June 13 - August 2, Tuesday - Saturday 12 - 6 PM
