Founded in December 2001 as an educational corporation and not-for-profit alternative space, PARTICIPANT seeks to provide a venue in which artists, curators, and writers can develop, realize, and present ambitious projects within a context that recognizes the social and cultural value of artistic experimentation. The mission of PARTICIPANT is to serve artists through in-depth consideration, presentation, and the publishing of critical writing; and to introduce this work into public contexts through exhibitions, screenings, performances, and educational programs. Our mission builds upon alternative space methodologies, particularly a commitment to interdisciplinary, intergenerational exhibition making, and an insistence upon placing together, in one space, work from various mediums — encouraging the coexistence of visual and time-based art. The programming priorities of PARTICIPANT INC reflect the premise that artists produce significant work through an in-depth relationship with an organization whose focus is articulated through a committed collaboration with them. By encouraging experimentation and project-based exhibitions for artists at many different stages of their careers, PARTICIPANT strives to address the changing context of alternative arts presenting and to respond responsibly to the diverse practices of artists.
