About 33 Collaborative

33 Collaborative is dedicated to the display and promotion of emerging, New York City-based Latinx artists. Established in 2018, the venture is a fusion of the two artistic passions of its founders: the culinary and visual arts. This art space fosters the appreciation of Latin American culture with rotating exhibitions held in an approachable, food-centered environment. Latin America is comprised of 33 individual countries, thus informing our namesake and our desire to feature the wide variety of culinary styles from the region. The collaborative does not exclusively represent artists, but rather utilizes an open call process to showcase a range of artists, styles, and ideas.

33 Collaborative is envisioned as a physical location in Williamsburg, Brooklyn that will foster relationships and encourage community-wide dialogue on Latin American culture. This contemporary exhibition space and casual eatery will become a destination to view a new artist’s work, grab drinks and tapas with friends, or listen to a panel on current issues. The lively atmosphere and strong artistic community in Williamsburg and the surrounding neighborhoods will be well-served by this unique fusion space.

Our Founders

33 Collaborative was founded by Sofia Ramirez and Alexandra Seneca who met in 2017 while pursuing a Master’s degree in Art Business at Sotheby’s Institute of Art, New York. They immediately bonded over the shared desire to establish a communal space that encourages the flow of ideas and provides opportunities for local, emerging Latinx artists to thrive.
