September 2018 Top Ten NYC Artists Now “Asking loved ones to pose with her in the studio, often in acrobatically challenging ways, these mediated hands-on visceral tableaus allow Sol to explore aspects of the human condition the artist finds most interesting – pushing against our limits, the risk of falling, and the co-presence of vulnerability and strength. Come out to Last Frontier, the collective space Sol stewards in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, for her Tuesday night stimulating artist salon events. The Last Frontier’s upcoming September 11th event occurs in partnership with Art 511 Magazine and Alexandra Arts.”
October 11, 2017 New York City opens its doors for Open House 2017: Last Frontier NYC's roof: “(…) a garden on top of a film studio, beside Newtown Creek in Greenpoint, north Brooklyn. Its setting amid industrial buildings gives it a sci-fi feel, but it has a down-to-earth purpose. The garden is part of an environmental project to give birds and insects a green corridor through the city.”
November 20, 2015 Sketches from a Carnivalesque Weekend of Brooklyn Performance Art “Meanwhile, a different kind of paean to the carnivalesque transpires in New York City, outside RoseLee Goldberg’s curatorial reach. On a recent weekend, with Brooklyn-based artist Miao Jiaxin as our own personal Charon, we crossed the rivers Styx and Acheron to experience the trippy underbelly of New York’s immersive performance art milieu. […] High Performance, an immersive performance put on by the Estonian collective Non Grata and Brooklyn-based Wild Torus that took place at Last Frontier. The new art space (and the work studio of Norwegian artist Sol Kjøk) is housed in a 100-year-old industrial building in Greenpoint, and while there, we’re pretty sure we experienced mythology itself in real time. […] Non Grata showed us how to save our bacon, as an anonymous naked woman made the rounds masked as a pig, while nursing a sustained flame. And they proved once and for all that if you must walk the plank, it’s always best to do so masked and bare breasted, while tap dancing the grapevine.”
November 6, 2015 A New Gallery with Epic Views of Shit Creek Will Host the Next Wild Torus Event “The whole experience was overwhelming, almost transcendental but also starkly real, both of which are feelings that I find are wildly distinct from anything I’ve ever been inspired to feel at a white-walled gallery show. […] The show will likely be Last Frontier’s final public event before Sol takes a winter break from exhibitions and events to paint. In the meantime, here’s your opportunity to check out one of those rare spaces that maintains the rough edges of a former factory– peeling paint, raw brick details and all– while moving in some attractive improvements like a glistening poured-concrete floor, and has no qualms about welcoming in some serious freaks.”

October 14, 2015 “Whispering Voices” at Last Frontier NYC "A ritual for our time" - presented by six artists in Last Frontier's industrial space.

October 6, 2015 ArtRx NYC “Last Frontier NYC, a new art venue that occupies a large, former industrial space in Greenpoint, opens this weekend and celebrates its inauguration with an evening of live performances by five artists. Featuring musical works by Katy Gunn, aerial performance art by Autumn Kioti, and digital animation by Richard Borge that each takes the human form as their starting point, the evening seems like it’s going to be pretty high-energy, packed with immersive, audience-involved presentations.”
October 2015 EVENTS: Whispering Voices “Six artists with a vision coming together from different disciplines to create a unique art experience. This multidisciplinary collaboration will take place at Last Frontier NYC: a huge, charismatic former industrial space with a rich patina built up on the exposed brick over the past hundred years, located at the final outpost of industrial New York in the Greenpoint neighborhood of Brooklyn.”
