In May 2015, REVOLVE opened to the public with two newly renovated spaces that are home to a gallery, a studio, and a teaching/think tank space.

Excavating Elsewhere

There are lots of glowing write-ups of Elsewhere as a living museum, as an artist residency, and as a thrift store where nothing is for sale, but here I aim to highlight its use of play to imagine a new politic, and the complex alternative economy and micro-utopian social experiment that have resulted.


During a three week residency this Fall, Carrie Schneider interviewed George Scheer, co-founder and co-director of Elsewhere, for this extensive profile. Look out for a companion essay on Elsewhere to be posted shortly.
