Public Address is a project space exhibiting the work of contemporary artists. Co-founded in 2014 by Piotr Chizinski and Amie Cunat, the gallery (dually serving as the founders' shared studio space) began as a site for artists to explore projects that require additional space or assistance to create site-specific installations that had not yet been realized.
Recently, Chizinski and Cunat built a dedicated 8'x10' gallery space within their studio to accommodate for longer shows. Artists invited to the gallery for solo exhibitions are also encouraged to utilize the PA-TV platform, where artist performances, video, and live events are broadcasted.
Piotr Chizinski is a sculptor who creates multi-media work that reveals the socio-political bias entrenched in urban, architectural and technological structures. His work questions the interactions we have within our built surroundings, and by extension, the motives of its architects through visual means. Piotr holds an MFA from Cornell University and a BA in Sculpture and Photography from Texas Tech University. His work has been exhibited at Outside (North Adams, MA), Ground Floor Gallery (Nashville, TN), Storefront for Art and Architecture (NY), Center for Craft Creativity and Design (Asheville, NC), Design Within Reach (Dallas, TX) and the Dumbo Arts Center (NY), among others. He is currently the Head of Multimedia at The Guggenheim Museum.
Amie Cunat is an abstract painter. She holds an MFA from Cornell University, a Post-Baccalaureate in Painting and Drawing from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and her BA in Visual Arts and Art History from Fordham University. Cunat has had solo exhibitions in New York and abroad at the Knockdown Center, The Sunroom Project Space at Wave Hill, The Cooper Union, AIRY Gallery, among others. She is currently Adjunct Faculty of Painting and Drawing at Fordham University and a member of the AAP Advisory Council at Cornell University.
