If you’ve never been to Marfa, the small Texas town three hours away from the nearest city with enough people to call a population, you’ve probably heard of it by now. Donald Judd ring a bell? At the helm of its art scene is Ballroom Marfa, which helped fund the famous 2005 sculpture “Prada Marfa” and has played host to a number of artists and musicians since it opened in 2003, including Grizzly Bear, Yo La Tengo, Sonic Youth, Joanna Newsom and Animal Collective, to name just a few.

X is one of the most unique gallery spaces you’ll find in New York, a not for profit initiative that will exist for one year and show art in four phases. The next phase opens tonight with No Soul For Sale, a spectacular lineup of artists represented by “the most exciting, creative and respected not for profit centers, alternative institutions, artists’ collectives and independent enterprises from around the world,” most of which showcase art that isn’t otherwise accessible to New York.
