Offline Projects is a new media experiential series, showcasing progressive underground talent in untraditional spaces. Every OP experience follows a simple formula: forward-thinking musician + new media artist + unique space. Their vision is to bridge the gap between art and nightlife using popup site-specific experiences. Each iteration is a distinctive one time event – never repeating, always innovating.

About the Operator: Wallplay
Wallplay is an experiential arts & innovation network that operates & programs empty retail spaces. Founded in 2013 on the Lower East Side at 118 Orchard, with art billboards and a two-floor popup space, Wallplay pioneered a unique 50-50 business model. The company is able to provide subsidized space for at least 50% of its annual use to creative projects, social impact startups, and curators by hosting commercial projects & pop-ups that allow Wallplay to dedicate resources to original programming. In the process of becoming a certified B-Corp, Wallplay’s mission is to repurpose vacant spaces around the world and utilize them for public good. Wallplay operates these vacant spaces until landlords secure permanent tenants. Their platform, which showcases creative projects, enables property owners & brands to become patrons of culture. Wallplay provides access to leading creative entrepreneurs, startups, arts organizations, storytellers and thought leaders for experiential projects that push culture forward. For the past five years, the company has been turning storefronts into playgrounds for new ideas.
Wallplay is a member of NEW INC, the world’s first museum-led incubator. NEW INC was founded by The New Museum in 2014 and is dedicated to supporting innovation, collaboration, and entrepreneurship across art, design, and technology.
