As of Right

As of Right exhibition October 9 - November 20, 2019 @ Richard & Dolly Maass Gallery


As of Right is a term used in property development to describe a proposed development that complies with all applicable zoning codes. In NYC, an As of Right Development does not require special permits, variances, or any discretionary action from the City Planning Commission or the Board of Standards and Appeals. Engaging artists in a broad conversation about spatial occupation, As of Right investigates different aspects of the topic in this exhibition of sculpture, video and performance works. This project asks where, when, and how different bodies are located in the landscape: from herbalists to police shootings to the space humans allow for other species and including the public college campus itself.
