Opened in 2006, Grace Exhibition Space is devoted exclusively to Performance Art. We offer an opportunity to experience visceral and challenging works by the current generation of international performance artists whether emerging, mid career or established. Being a Brooklyn loft, our events are presented on the floor, not on a stage, dissolving the boundary between artist and viewer. This is how performance art is meant to be experienced and our mission is the glorification of performance art.
Grace Exhibition Space presents over 30 curated live performance art exhibitions each year, showcasing new work by more than 400 performance artists from across the United States and the world since 2006. Grace Space received fiscal sponsorship through Fractured Atlas in 2007.
Since opening, Grace Space has had the opportunity to present three pivotal members of the internationally famous group Black Market International: Boris Nieslony, Roi Vaara and Lee Wen; Mexican artist and curator Martin Renteria and the 3rd World Pirate Marcel Da Champ. We have hosted the local, internationally renowned artists Peter Dobill, Marni Kotak, Nugent Smith, Rafael Sanchez and Rob Andrews- as well as the internationally renowned Boston artists Mari Novotny-Jones, Jeff Huckleberry, Sandy Huckleberry, Alice Vogler, Vela Phelan, Sandrine Scheaffer and Marilyn Arsem (Ms. Arsem was presented through esteemed curator Jonas Stampe's Live Art Festival).
