I am taking a hiatus from blogging. The posts I now add will be unedited and unpolished, please forgive me. I am using this platform as a storage place for interesting things. I am currently focusing on editing wikipedia articles on contemporary art instead. I encourage you to do the same and to follow still very active blogs like hyperallergic, c-monster, bldgblog, and more. thanks you.

No Longer Empty

No Longer Empty

"No Longer Empty embraces a fresh perspective on creating, presenting and experiencing art.

No Longer Empty works with internationally recognized curators to feature established artists alongside lesser known or new artists, using limited resources without sacrificing quality.  The synthesis of area and site research drives each curatorial theme and the selection of artists.  The curatorial premise and the physical realities of the location provide artists with an alternative to today’ s art world status quo allowing them to expand their practice through site commissioned work.

No Longer Empty presents art in environments that are free and accessible to all.  Our multi-locational exhibitions engage directly with each community drawing on the resources and connections of community groups to provide meaningful programming.  Utilizing vacated spaces in the urban context, we act as a catalyst for revitalization and economic opportunity for local business through the increased flow of visitors that these exhibitions attract. 

At the heart of the experience is community engagement and benefit. Our presence in each neighborhood is focused on encouraging local participation and attracting new visitors to the neighborhood.  We nourish and build relationships with the people that come to our exhibitions, the community around our activities and the artist community we form around us.  

No Longer Empty redefines public art through temporary site -specific exhibitions that draw together the vitality of the contemporary art world and the values of building community.

Each exhibition site becomes a cultural/educational hub where a community of artists, educators, scholars and the public come together to create and experience art, free of market imperative and institutional constraints.

We offer a public service that involves, includes and inspires."
