Review: Not Each, But All
Aggregate Space was once a cavernous, empty warehouse without a name. In 2010, artists Conrad M. Meyers II and S.D. Willis moved in, hoping to house their ideas there. Without a clear end point in mind, they gradually began to build out the facility. They invited artists who, like them, were interested in pushing the boundaries of art and opportunity. With their help, they added a loft, a theater, utilities, office space, and a gallery. The last step was to open up their artistic endeavor to the public.
