Alternative Spaces for Exhibiting Your Work

Alternative Spaces for Exhibiting Your Work

Rhonda Schaller | ArtyShark

Some of the alternative spaces with entrepreneurial aspects/frameworks are: Art registries and flat files; online galleries; artist communities; co-ops; collaborative spaces; artist run spaces; non profit galleries and art centers; artist fairs; open studios; private art salons; studio galleries; public art commissions; online auctions; eBay. Plus of course corporate lobbies, subways, taxi cabs, street corners, cafes, restaurants; empty lots, building walls, fields, trees, any space that can be redefined and transformed through art and observation.

Also, there are juried shows, open calls, artist residencies, public art projects, guerilla art happenings, unconventional commercial galleries, University galleries, and museum collections and biennials.
