Her strength is in this search for … More Screening at El Cid & Interview with KTG TALKS in the key of Lee Krasner

Christine Stormberg is a force to be reckoned with. Tina Gallery, her latest project and namesake, has no rules and no formality. Tucked behind a Wacky Wacko storefront, run by fellow artists Peggy Noland and Seth Bogart, the whole enterprise feels like its own exhibition, playfully questioning the hierarchy of galleries, commerce, and performance. “I’m … More How Art Spaces Identify: A Spiritual Beckoning with Christine Stormberg at Tina Gallery
