Best Working Studio and Exhibition Space: Bunk Spot

Operating out of its current location for less than a year, Bunk Spot has benefited immensely from the exhibitions that manager Ben Brown sets up on Final Fridays in what otherwise is a working studio in the Pendleton Arts District. It’s a continuation of a music/arts venue that Brown and former collaborator Chris Adams began in 2009 in a warehouse near Carl Solway Gallery in the West End. This current iteration also serves as the headquarters for Brown’s ongoing collaborative project Bunk News, as well as a workspace for others. “We keep a loose aesthetic by not being confined to pristine white walls and a conventional gallery ethic,” he says.
