Delusional Downtown Divas chronicles the adventures of Oona, Swann, and AgNess, three young women hungry for art-world stardom but comically unaware of how to reach their goal of stylish domination. The DDD's are downtown natives, living in AgNess' father's Tribeca loft. They spend their days smoking pot, changing outfits every few minutes, and plotting about out how to worm their way back into the art world they were raised in-- but now they're adult women with professional aspirations, not just kids stealing pretzels from Leo Castelli's gallery kitchen.

Delusional Downtown Divas premiered at APF LAB gallery.
