Third Streaming (3S) at Greene Street is a for-benefit enterprise and is ‘the location’ where art, music, fashion, design, food and the street collide. We highlight the crossover, connection and combination of the creative lifestyle.
Taking its cue from the term Third Stream Music — a musical genre that defines a synthesis of classical music and jazz — 3S at Greene Street is where independent culture-makers of all kinds meet. Our mission is simple: we support the development of arts, culture and entertainment through collaborations and by mixing artistic genres to produce unexpected outcomes.
3S participates in the development of society through contemporary art; we support artists by helping with the production of work and creating opportunities that promote their role as cultural agents to maximize impact and raise visibility for their work. 3S is committed to increasing awareness around socially relevant issues addressed through our exhibition and public programs, many of which are done in partnership with other institutions.
3S’s programming encompasses all forms of creative expression, including but not limited to: exhibitions, live art/performance, talks/panels, screenings, experimental music, dance, and our popular Paladar dinners. Prepared by invited guest artist chefs, these events highlight a particular theme and are centered on the presentation of food, the art of cooking and conversation while sharing a meal.
Interdisciplinary programming is a focus, particularly when the visual arts and performance intersect. Our extended exhibitions and related programs explore the politics of class, race, gender, sexuality and to that end, 3S partners with artists across generations whose work pushes artistic boundaries while also addressing a range of socio-political, environmental and economic issues.
The Soho loft 3S is located in is reminiscent of the raw downtown spaces where so many ‘happenings’ and performances took place in the 1960s and 70s. A period marked by artists and others coming together to experience art in an informal setting. Our programming references that rich history within the context of New York today.
