PROGRAMS: HEREart

  • 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.

Upcoming HEREart shows

  • Is Anybody There? Sep 4 - Oct 25

    Curated by Hanne Tierney

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

  • Beige! Oct 2 - Nov 1

    Curated by Lovina Purple 

    Beige! is a group exhibition featuring works that fall into that slightly vague description of “beige” using texture, form, and process as the highlight of their work over brightness of color or contrast.

  • Principles of Invisiblity Nov 6 - Dec 6

    Elizabeth Kauffman 

    Through the lens of paranormal sightings and occult knowledge, Kauffman creates an experimental laboratory testing personal forms of cosmic knowledge to bring into question the “truth” of visual data and recorded experiences.

  • Erin Colleen Johnson & Jessica Hankey Dec 11 - Jan 17

    Erin Colleen Johnson and Jessica Hankey use photography and video to explore themes of social connection and belonging within institutions that are losing or have lost their authority.
