GRACE EXHIBITION SPACE : MISSION STATEMENT To offer live performance art exhibitions, including contemporary visual performance, for the public to experience visceral and challenging performance works by the current generation of domestic and international performance artists. To offer an environment that supports exchange and collaboration among performance artists and audiences from diverse cultures and artistic backgrounds. To educate the public and the art community in performance art by staging live performances, on the floor, dissolving the boundary between artist and viewer. We also conduct public discussion groups, forums, panels, lectures, and other similar programs.
Opened in 2006, Grace Exhibition Space is devoted exclusively to Performance Art. We offer an opportunity to experience visceral and challenging works by the current generation of international performance artists whether emerging, mid-career or established. Our events are presented on the floor, not on a stage, dissolving the boundary between artist and viewer. This is how performance art is meant to be experienced and our mission is the glorification of performance art.
Grace Exhibition Space presents over 30 curated live performance art exhibitions each year, showcasing new work by more than 400 performance artists from across the United States and the world since 2006.
Grace Exhibition Space for International Performance Art Space IRS tax-exempt 501(c)3 status in 2013.
