Soho's artistic heyday wasn't all that long ago, but thanks to the tourist-clogged streets and uber-fancy shops that sent many art-pushers to Chelsea and the artists to Bushwick and beyond, it seems like it took place on another planet. A big part of that long-gone world was 112 Workshop, which witnessed the creative births of Richard Serra, Laurie Anderson, and Chuck Close. This March, Royce Bannon and the Endless Love Crew are bringing the beat back to the storied Greene Street address. Their Work to Do show, inspired by the words of our new President, revives the legendary art space with the street-based work of graf writers like NohJ Coley and Kosbe.
