Front Desk Apparatus is a research-driven art advisory service, project space and studio practice based in New York. Since 2009, Front Desk Apparatus has developed from the founding premise of R. Teeters Contemporary Consulting, Inc. (est. 2006) to incorporate a broader set of practices and self-initiated projects that reflect on and elaborate the advisory’s approach to its own research and conduct. This involves an increasingly diverse repertoire of projects and collaborations with artists, curators, collectors and cultural institutions that contribute to an evolving sense of how we work and through what means we think. Now on 37th Street, Front Desk Apparatus consists of founder, Rob Teeters and associate Michael Capio.
