Ortega y Gasset Projects (OyG) is an artist-run curatorial collective and exhibition space in Gowanus, Brooklyn. Founded in May 2013 in Bushwick, Brooklyn,  by Lauren AdamsJoshua BienkoClare BrittCarrie HottJessica LangleyLeeza MeksinSheilah Wilson and Karla Wozniak, OyG moved to Gowanus in February 2015.

OyG is entirely run by working artists, and so recognizes that exploration is key to the sustainment of artistic vitality. Thus, we embark on an exploratory model where artists take the role of curator, critic and promoter. Working without specific intentions of commercial profit or an explicit curatorial ideology, the goal of OyG is to mount exhibitions that provoke interpretation and dialogue and bolster artistic community. In doing so, we participate within a wider forum to disseminate aesthetic experience in new ways and expand our roles, priorities and scope of influence within art culture.

Half of the current co-directors of OyG live outside of New York City. Working collaboratively over geographical distances allows OyG to extend beyond local communities and forge larger networks of cultural dialogue.
