Artists Space was founded in 1972 in order to fill an urgent gap in the visibility and support of then-emerging contemporary art in its most radical forms: site-specific installation, new conceptions of painting and sculpture, performance art, intermedia, underground music, artists’ films, and critical thought via public discourse. From that legendary era forward, Artists Space has continually reinvented its position as an indispensable incubator, resource, and active agent in our field. With our move to 80 White Street, we are committed to yet again manifesting Artists Space as the bedrock of contemporary art ideas and a highly visible beacon of downtown Manhattan amidst all the radical and atomizing changes the art world and this city are experiencing.
