SPOKE NYC is pleased to present LAX/JFK, a group exhibition curated by Los Angeles-based gallery, Thinkspace. This comprehensive exhibition is Thinkspace’s eleventh iteration of its widely respected traveling series, which will bring Thinkspace’s unique focus on the New Contemporary Art Movement to New York City.


Featuring over forty artists, LAX/JFK will include a mini solo exhibition by Matthew Grabelsky, comprised of 8 new oil paintings from his subway series as well as a new limited edition print.
