Spudnik Members: It’s not too late to join our 2018 Exhibitions Committee!

The Spudnik Press Exhibitions Committee provides a platform for members to take the lead in the curatorial process for our exhibitions. It acts as a steering committee for exhibition-related opportunities, assists with all areas of exhibition development, and helps promote gallery events. The goal of the Committee is to organize and help select exhibitions that amplify the impact of resources at Spudnik Press by providing opportunities for artists and audiences to move through a variety of creative roles: from making to experiencing, from learning to teaching. The Committee is fully supported by Spudnik Press staff who lead meetings, manage all exhibitions, oversee budgets, and assist with other areas as needed.
