ArtSpace @ Staten Island Arts is a meeting place and project space.
ArtSpace exhibits both international and local artists, including visual artists, poets, musicians, writers, and performers. The focus is on artistic projects that are place-based–examining local communities, helping people consider their environs in new ways, exploring how neighborhoods might be more livable and sustainable, and/or creating ways visitors can become more socially engaged.
As presenters, Staten Island Arts is interested in building a bridge between the viewing audience and artists. The goal is to turn viewers into participants — engaging them with art, and inspiring them to venture into the cultural hotspots found all over the island.
Want to Pitch a Show?
ArtSpace @ Staten Island Arts seeks proposals for exhibits/projects (installed for 10 weeks) and 2-4 related public programming/workshops (45 minutes to full day) that investigate and explore issues relevant to the waterfront, and/or Staten Island. Especially encouraged are place-based projects that work with ideas of cultures and communities in an integrated and accessible way and that help communities become more livable, sustainable, and/or socially engaged. Programs could focus on topics that nurture and heal communities; educate and inform us about ourselves, our history, and our world; build and improve community capacity or infrastructure; or inspire and mobilize individuals or groups.

All media are considered, but please note that because of the public nature of the site, all programs must be appropriate for viewing by all ages. Projects are typically installed for a duration of seven to ten weeks. Workshops can take place Monday-Saturday and can range from 45 minutes to a full day. Submissions are reviewed based on quality, creativity, concept, applicability to our mission, as well as gallery availability.
