Art space and creative playground now open in downtown Durham!
Nearly a century ago, this warehouse complex housed giant coolers for fruits and veggies arriving by train. Today we have 22,000sf dedicated to making and experiencing visual and performing arts that include film, dance, painting, photography, and drama. We love hosting alternative and emerging artists among world class artists.
At present, the Georges Rousse "Blue Room" and "Dream Room" are our sole art installations.
Hours: We are open during performance times and announced gallery openings, and by appointment.
Location/Parking: FREE parking in the County Human Services lot on evenings and weekends. Find us at the intersection of Dillard and Ramseur, near Durham Cider Works and before Ponysaurus, about four blocks east of DPAC and American Tobacco.
Money spent here recirculates to benefit the art scene in the region. Thanks!

IGNITION featuring JOHNNY TRIKA
Join Subtek as we continue our new underground techno odyssey Ignition Series by featuring artists throughout the globe in this exclusive 10PM to 5AM warehouse 90's style events. This edition we are welcoming Montreal's very own, Johnny Trika.
Johnny is fast becoming the producer’s “producer” in the techno world. A devoted master of gear, Johnny is well practiced at teasing out fluid and darkly rich bass lines that keep the nightclub and festival crowds moving on the floor. Hear his music once and it is no surprise why Johnny is now being regarded as one of the new breeds of live techno performers.

More on Johnny:
After spending his late teen years in the studio mastering his sound, Johnny connected with Ali “Dubfire” Shirazinia, a meeting that led to 3 EPs on Dubfire’s prestigious SCI+TEC label. 2016’s ‘Day Tripper’ sat at the #1 spot on Beatport’s Minimal charts for over a week. Johnny is also featured on Matt Sassari’s ‘Panterre’ label, contributing with a remix for Matt’s own ‘Don Freeze Up’.
Johnny keeps his live sets stacked only with original material, both released hits, and unreleased gems. He has performed at Output, Stereo, CODA, BPM Festival (twice) and Block 33. He’s performed in Italy, Greece, Sweden, Spain, Portugal, and Cyprus. He plays in Canada and the U.S. regularly. And, what’s more, his tracks are consistently featured in the DJ sets of heavyweights like Richie Hawtin and Dubfire and in the sets you hear at the big festivals like Time Warp, Awakenings, Tomorrowland. Johnny’s mission is to push the development of techno and to never let it sit stagnant all the while injecting his own artistic essence.
Johnny’s focus and intensity bleed into his live performances, showing up in his experimentation with track arrangements live to produce sets that cannot be duplicated again, all the while delivering the patented “Johnny Trika” sound to the dance floor.

“I wanted to write about the American family - what it looks like now, and how families are made in unexpected ways,” says playwright Rachel Bonds. The family members she brings us in Curve of Departure are young and old, Jewish and Christian, gay and straight, black and white and brown. This "strange ragtag little group of humans" navigate joy and sadness together over the course of one night.
"A tight-knit family drama so comfortable in its skin... a little gem of a play.” - Washington City Paper
