Microscope Gallery was founded in 2010 by artists and curators Elle Burchill and Andrea Monti and is located in the Bushwick area of Brooklyn, NY. The gallery specializes in the works of moving image, sound, digital and performance artists – from the emerging to pioneers of their art forms – through exhibitions and weekly events.

Microscope addresses the unnecessary divide between the white box setting of the gallery and black box of the screening/performance venue. It was conceived as a place where artists working with these time-based arts can show their works in one or the other or both contexts according to their artistic intent.

Alongside its regular exhibition schedule, Microscope presents a weekly event series complementing and expanding the curatorial programming through screenings, performance, readings and lectures. From its original micro-sized 4 Charles Place location, in September 2014 the gallery has moved to a larger space at 1329 Willoughby Avenue, Brooklyn NY.

In 2016-17 Microscope produced and co-curated “Dreamlands: Expanded” a series of 10 expanded cinema events in collaboration with the Whitney Museum of American Art as part of the exhibition “Dreamlands: Immersive Cinema & Art, 1905-2016”.
