Join Black Cube & ArtPlant on Jan. 17-20 for a symposium on artist-run spaces.
Taking its cue from recent shifts in Denver's creative landscape, with new artist-run spaces opening (such as Minerva Projects) and the closing of many well-respected venues (such as Leisure), this symposium will address the various trajectories of artist-run spaces alongside their evolving communities.
During the symposium, 4 representatives from 3 spaces across the U.S. will share insights about the challenges, opportunities, and motivations for running their own DIY exhibition spaces
Through an inclusive collaborative structure, Regina Rex aims to build an exhibition context that is rigorous, cogent, and driven by their engagement and dialogue with other artists. Regina Rex was founded in 2010 by 13 artists, one of the founders, Siebren Versteeg, and the current director, Katherine Aungier, will be in attendance for the symposium.
