Three installations: “The Path. Filling-in Abstract Forms: Overwriting Barnett Newman,” “The Glimpse,” and “parsing [i]dentity. towards a nomadic recon[figuration],” and two sound installations, which reflect on the importance of non-creative art and ec(h)ology in artistic creation. The exhibition raises questions about how “non-creative art” can be retrieved as art, and whether this type of art is exhausted by the paradox of being a copy of modernity, reproduced and determined by the “reproduction of the cliché” of originality.

We have hosted more than 100 individual and group exhibitions since 2009 with a non-commercial, installation-based mentality. We have a gallery team who meets regularly to plan art shows and programs. We aim to be a venue for innovative, experimental, and challenging contemporary art, often favoring the process over a packaged presentation.

The gallery team is open to anyone who is interested and willing to commit to participation in this group process. Email to find out when the next meeting is (we usually meet every two weeks).

We openly accept proposals for exhibitions, workshops, and art happenings. If you have an idea, we welcome written proposals, digital images or web links, or joining us at a meeting. We are especially interested in helping others develop and lead workshops and participatory projects. There is no formula for application, only interest in utilizing the space, engaging with the community, and making the most of your time here.
