Store — BOOKS

Ed. Var­ie an inde­pend­ent pub­lish­er and gal­lery based in East Vil­lage, New York is going to open an “offi­cial“ book shop on March 21st 2012

Once home to one of the first anarch­ist book­stores in Man­hat­tan, then fol­lowed by nearly a dec­ade act­ing as gal­lery and stu­dio to East Vil­lage artists, the store­front that Ed. Var­ie occu­pies is a seasoned altern­at­ive art ven­ue.  

After many years of neg­lect from apathet­ic land­lords, Ed. Var­ie was lov­ingly restored entirely with recycled and reclaimed mater­i­als, and trans­formed into a cas­u­al and com­fort­able envir­on­ment that, we hope, once you arrive, you relax and stay for a bit.

Ed. Var­ie is an inde­pend­ently owned and oper­ated altern­at­ive gal­lery and art space in the East Village’s Alpha­bet City. Inspired by the fun­da­ment­als of open pro­gram­ming, Ed. Var­ie is ded­ic­ated to cre­at­ing a space for artists. Ed. Var­ie fosters all forms of con­tem­por­ary art, and offers a plat­form for estab­lished as well as emer­ging artists to explore new con­cepts and take unchartered risks in their prac­tice.  Ed. Var­ie sup­ports a wide range of artists nation­ally and inter­na­tion­ally, as well main­tains a per­man­ent lib­rary of lim­ited edi­tion art books from inde­pend­ent and micro-niche pub­lish­ers.”
