15th ANNIVERSARY – WILD & ALIVE !
GRACE EXHIBITION SPACE for INTERNATIONAL PERFORMANCE ART 2006 - 2021 and going . . .
Grace Exhibition Space for International Performance Art will be unveiling and exhibiting their collection of artifacts, created from performances across the last 14 years: an installation remembering/recounting/reusing artifacts, images, videos, memories and dialogues in recognition of our past. From September 2006 – August 2018, GES was at home on the 2nd floor at 840 Broadway, Brooklyn. In 2018, we were forced to leave our Broadway home, and found an incredibly welcoming new home at 182 Avenue C/Loisaida Avenue.
Grace Exhibition Space was incorporated as a 501(c)3 non-profit in 2013, proving to be a challenge in navigating a corporation within the networking community of performance artists. Since 2006, we have operated as a community of performance art - artists and spaces - that include the communities of Bushwick, Brooklyn; performance art spaces: Glasshouse, Panoply Performance Lab, IV Soldiers, Microscope, Bizarre Bar and the Maximum Perception and BIPAF Festivals.
Grace Exhibition Space will create a participatory exhibition, continuing to expand our community of viewers and participants. Objects will be brought out into the light for the first time since the performance art piece when they were created. Objectification, history and memory will be on exhibit as well, as we contemplate and celebrate the history of performance art in Brooklyn, the long history of performance art in the East Village, and the historically long history of performance art themselves.

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. 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.
