Featured HEREart Exhibition
I like art with a little bit of a bite to it, just make sure it’s sugarcoated.
- About HEREart:
HEREart provides emerging and early career visual artists and curators access to space at an active, well-located multi-arts center. We feature 5-6 exhibitions each year that creatively work with our unique spaces and engage audiences with artwork specially curated to function within a busy environment. This focus on interactive space naturally leads HEREart to function as the center of our community of artists.
HEREart’s location as an entryway to our theatres ensures a diverse and eclectic audience will experience the art. HEREart embraces its alter ego as a lobby for HERE’s performance spaces and encourages our artists to react and respond to this with their exhibits. HERE is a very appropriate place for today’s active and interactive visual art: art
that often moves, makes noise, and physically engages the viewer. HEREart seeks to snag
these passers-by and engage them in a dialogue with the space in which we move. HEREart is invested in supporting artworks of all media and various content (painting, sculpture, photography, drawing, collage, media), but we concentrate on new work that in some way addresses the special conditions of our space.
Every exhibit at HERE is a site-specific installation that stretches our understanding of the words “art” and “performance,” creating a multi-layered experience for our patrons that sticks with them as they move from one space to the next.
How to apply
We are no longer accepting submissions for HEREart's 2014 Season. Our call for submissions will be posted in July.

The work in this exhibition shares a sense of time suspended. Or, perhaps, of time simply not taking place.
