An HONORABLE mention!!! Our gallery name change from Christopher Stout Gallery, New York to ADO Project (Art During the Occupation) is cited in an article by Carl Swanson in New York Magazine titled, "Is Political Art the Only Art That Matters Now?" regarding the art world “going to war” with Trump… click the image above to access the online version of the article.


Christopher Stout Gallery, New York has rebranded our gallery name to ADO Project in correlation with a gallery structure change to a not for profit organization. “ADO” is an acronym for “Art During the Occupation” and serves as a constant statement of protest against our current national leadership.

More than ever, our gallery will remain steadfast in its mission to show subversive and difficult work, serving as a platform for discourse on work that is challenging to authority paradigms, feminist, queer, anti-establishment, hyper-aggressive, mystic, and/or joyously sexual.


We show the ART that generates global cultural conversations!

We show the work that expands the definition of ART and its genres!

“The Fictional Geometry of Self-Castration,” presents work dealing with paranoid views of perception to address the difficulties of analyzing reality.
