Launched by Malika Leiper and Stephen Burks, Contemporaries is a new storefront studio project located in Dumbo. Coming from the disciplines of urban planning and industrial design, Leiper and Burks will transform the 400 square-foot space monthly through project-based activations curated in collaboration with their contemporaries. Neither a gallery, nor a store, nor a studio, Contemporaries is a space dedicated to their time and limitless field of imagination. "Contemporaries is where we go to feel connected to culture, to experience beauty, and create art in the company of our community"
