Brooklyn, NY, November 2016 -  ART 3 gallery is pleased to announce that Brooklyn-based artist Brett Wallace has successfully delivered the first piece of art by drone. This is the world's first drone delivery of art. This delivery was completed on October 18th, 2016 at around 8:00am ET in Dumbo, Brooklyn while Wallace's recent show, IF THIS , THEN WHAT was on view at ART 3 Gallery.

Viewers can see the video of the delivery and photographs Wallace took of the landing at his upcoming show entitled RESERVED FOR ENGINEERING at This Friday or Next Friday (courtesy of ART 3 Gallery).

Part product launch, part exhibition, part interactive event, RESERVED FOR ENGINEERING is a meditation on the speed, quantity, and spectacle of production and distribution. Wallace intervenes in these systems by addressing labor through the self-created company Amazing, recording testimonials of employees hired by the artist, and displaying a video of the first delivery of artwork by drone. Viewers will shuffle through the gallery turned Fulfillment Center, navigating a space of customized pizza boxes, drone surveillance, and employees sorting and stocking cultural goods, all the while feeding the network created by the space that is Reserved for Engineering.

RESERVED FOR ENGINEERING is a ongoing performance exhibition following Wallace’s exhibition at ART 3, IF THIS THEN WHAT that explored Wallace's interest in the speed and spectacle of production and distribution systems and their impact on society. Wallace's works arrive to us out of interventions he is creating in a production process. Wallace's work both celebrates and examines the speed and after effects of production and distribution.  He encourages us to think about what type of society we want to become at the pace we are moving and how our society will change with new developments in production, distribution and storage.
