The Struggles of Starting a Gallery

In 2010, Blue Bridge Media contacted artist Jacob Alexander to document the creation of his most ambitious work yet: Karnak Gallery. Located in the heart of Downtown Minneapolis (mere blocks from the historic First Ave nightclub), the gallery was to serve as an artistic oasis in the midst of the bustling downtown nightlife. After nearly a year of planning, the gallery failed in only a few months. Lack of attendance, disorganization, and even sabotage doomed it nearly from the start.

What started off as process documentation, the documentary turned into a tale of the trials and tribulations of starting an art gallery in Minneapolis. This is just one story of the struggles of many galleries in the Twin Cities to share the same fate.
