ABOUT NLE

No Longer Empty (NLE) curates bold, site-responsive exhibitions in unconventional locations across New York City. We foreground art as a catalyst for community-led conversations about place, and we commission diverse artists at all stages of their careers to expand their practices through site-specific works.


Since 2009, No Longer Empty’s educational programs have inspired New York City’s youth and families to share their voices through collective storytelling and to re-imagine public space through art.

No Longer Empty’s arts education programs Young Exhibition Makers and Youth Action Council are made possible through the generous support of the Laurie M. Tisch Illumination Fund, New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, New York State Council on the Arts, the NYC COVID-19 Response and Impact Fund in The New York Community Trust, the National Endowment for the Arts, and individual donors.

Special thanks to web guru EDWARD VELANDRIA for the design and programming of this site.
