The Lodge Gallery and True Ink are proud to present True Stables: “Home of the People’s Horse,” a first ever attempt to build a collective thoroughbred horse racing program. The project will fuse in-depth stories, live experiences and the documentation and crowdsourcing of a competitive racing team and racehorse.
The project begins on Tuesday, April 26th, with a public opening (7-9pm), kicking off a two-week festival of programming and parties leading up to this year’s Kentucky Derby (May 7th). Outside a slate of private events, the gallery will be open to the public.
True Ink: Founded by Geoffrey Gray, the New York Times bestselling author and award-winning documentary producer, True.Ink is a reimagination of the classic pulp magazine from the 1930’s and 40’s, and a place where modern adventure stories come to life. Along with a team of journalists, True soft launched last year, debuting with an exclusive video featuring Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, who revealed his secret recipe for pancakes, along with legendary boxing trainer Freddie Roach, who broke down the danger of love and romance in the ring. Celebrating expertise and innovation, True also revealed tips on running with the bulls in Pamplona, making exquisite beer from rotten-smelling fruit, methods to craft a house- boat from scratch, among others. Along with monthly-family style dinners and other special events, the magazine has been racing General Patton’s old schooner boat to Havana and currently has plans to head to Mongolia later this year to search for Genghis Khan’s missing tomb.
The Lodge Gallery, founded by Keith Schweitzer and Jason Patrick Voegele, is located at 131 Chrystie Street on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. It is the exhibition venue of Republic Worldwide and serves as both an art space and a gathering place for hearty discourse and experimentation.
