About the Conference

   

Started in 2011 by ThreeWalls in Chicago and hosted in New Orleans, Fall of 2013 by Press Street



 

Hand-in-Glove is an itinerant conference for independent visual arts organizers working at the crossroads of creative administration and studio practice; those engaged in the pragmatic realities and imaginative possibilities of organizing exhibitions, re-granting programs, publications, residencies, public programs, pedagogical experiments, platforms for projects, and a variety of other programming that challenges traditional formats for the production and reception of art at the grassroots level. The conference welcomes spaces and projects that are self-organized, independent, and noncommercial. It also welcomes organizations that started small but have grown big, retaining the artist-run values and priorities that were a part of their founding.

Hand-in-Glove was conceived as a way to start a national conversation on creative activity happening outside of traditional institutions and spread the word about innovative organizing models and under-the-radar opportunities that could be useful to artists and organizers. A vibrant and vital art world would be unimaginable without these spaces and projects. Despite the fact that these programs offer most -- if not all -- of the ground floor support for artists, they operate with very little to no funding or resources beyond sweat equity, volunteer labor, and personal resources. In short, these spaces lack the proper support system and infrastructure to fully thrive and actualize their programs on a fully resourced scale. In response to this realization, the conference was formed to bring together independent arts organizers from across the country to address the practical and philosophical issues prevalent in their work.
