Flatiron South, Curator in Residence: Akeem Duncan

Currently on view at The Yard: Flatiron South

A Turning of The Tables

Featuring Bronx born and raised, Tiffany Gomez of Gomez Design Studio

Curated by Akeem K. Duncan | @akeemkduncan of Quiet Lunch



Tiffany’s work is crafted solely from construction waste salvaged locally from homes throughout NYC’s five boroughs. It is an act of architectural preservation, breathing newness into the undesirable. Through this work, Tiffany aims to look beyond issues of consumption and takes a deeper dive into how we construct the world around us. Geometrically rich works reinterpret the connections lost between us and the material world. What is typically seen as disposable matter, now connects into a larger, more focused network of intentional parts.



Currently on display at The Yard: Flatiron South  (234 5th Avenue, floors 2-5), please stop by to see the show during business hours, Monday – Friday, 10 am – 4:30 pm and join us for the opening reception, Friday, March 31st, from 6-9 PM. For inquiries and private appointments please reach out to Akeem at RSVP@quietlunch.com.

He is a dedicated promoter of the arts, expert mingler, profuse sweater and compulsive writer. As the leader of Quiet Lunch, he is responsible for the daily operations of the magazine. While his ogre-like appearance may be intimidating to unfamiliar onlookers, Akeem is known among his friends and fellow staff for his bear-like hugs, his excessive humor, and his untamed passion for the work we do at Quiet Lunch.
