Next Level actively acknowledges its role within and responsibility to its greater community through a partnership with world-renowned Asian emporium Pearl River Mart, which has donated rice-paper lanterns for customization by 70 New York City artists.
Tala Voronoi III @ Next LevelPearl River, a family-run retailer in downtown Manhattan, has served as an inspiration and resource to generations of New Yorkers since 1971. Bulbs for the lanterns will be donated by Tala, a young British lighting brand that is guided by the founding promise of Conservation Through Beauty.
The lanterns will be displayed over 3,000 square feet within the Next Level space and sold via an online platform, with a percentage of the proceeds going to the Robin Hood Foundation, a charitable organization which attempts to alleviate problems caused by poverty in New York City.
Dynamic programming by HERE PROJECTS further enriches the progressive setting. Featuring everything from opening and closing events to industry panels and talks to live performances by DJs, dancers and special guests, it celebrates the collaborators’ connecting threads and varied inspirations. A full list of programs is available on the Next Level website.
