Satan is Alive and Well on the LES / by John McGurk

Vector Gallery, the newest addition to the growing arts district on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, is really interested in Satan.  Generally, I wouldn't pay much attention, I think Satan and poop already get too much attention in art, but these guys seem really dedicated to the cause.   

I walk by this space about ten times a day, and I am pretty sure the guys running this space are living there.  At all hours, they are working in the space, creating what appears to be a gallery size shrine to Satan.  I admire their nocturnal sensibilities, as I am a night owl, and their general disdain for any coherent message or work in the space.  From the looks of their website, there is a lot going on, so if your interested in finding out if Charles Manson is in fact Jesus Christ and shocking people with your art, then you should connect with theses guys.
