1708 Gallery will be launching the official site for its online journal, ext. 1708 in spring 2012. Stay tuned!
1708 Gallery’s mission is to promote new art, a mission achieved via a rotating schedule of exhibitions that seeks to present a diverse range of projects. In relation, the gallery strives to educate the public about Contemporary art and employs artist talks and didactic text panels to illustrate the exhibiting artist/artists’ issues, themes, and modes of working. In an effort to further expand opportunities for education, 1708 Gallery is pleased to announce the creation of an on-line journal.
Funded through a grant from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, which also supports 1708 Gallery’s exhibitions, this journal will feature essays, interviews and other writings that provide context for 1708’s exhibitions and promote further dialogue about contemporary art. The gallery will work with a range of writers, from graduate students to professional writers, to allow for multiple voices and experiences to contribute to this project. Writers will be matched with 1708 Gallery’s exhibiting artists.
1708 Gallery thanks the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts for their support as we strive to elevate the conversations about contemporary art and culture, and about their role and function in our lives.
Stay tuned for further details!
