Celebrate an incredible 40 years of artistic exploration and experimentation with 17 artists & collectives and 4 executive directors who represent the wide range of cultural production that has taken place through SPACES.

20/20 Hindsight = 40 Years is curated by SPACES Executive Director Christina Vassallo, and former Executive Directors: founder James Rosenberger, Susan Channing, and Christopher Lynn. Each curator selected a group of artists who have defined their time at the helm of SPACES and whose work with SPACES propelled the artists' careers.

Participating artists include Margaret Cogswell (New York, NY); Christa Donner (Chicago, IL); James Duesing (Pittsburgh, PA); Kevin Jerome Everson (Charlottesville, VA); Anna Viola Hallberg (Stockholm, Sweden); Kevin Hogan (Ashville, NC); Steffani Jemison (Brooklyn, NY); Ben Kinsley & Jessica Langley (Colorado Springs, CO); Steve Lambert (Purchase, NY); Pipo Nguyen-duy (Oberlin, OH); Sarah Paul (Cleveland, OH); Dan Rothenfeld (Cleveland, OH); Roopa Vasudevan (Shanghai, China); returning SWAP Artist-in-Residence Ward Shelley (Easton, CT); Corrie Slawson (Cleveland, OH), Amber J. Anderson (Cleveland, OH) & Elena Harvey Collins (Santa Cruz, CA); and Jud Yalkut (d. Cincinnati, OH). Dustin Grella (Bronx, NY) will collect visitors' favorite SPACES stories in his Animation Hotline phone booth, in order to turn the voice mails into stop motion animations that will play in The Vault in November 2018.

Concurrent with the exhibition at SPACES, the Kelvin Smith Library at Case Western Reserve University, has organized A Space Gathering, Spaces at 40: An Organizational Retrospective, featuring SPACES archival documents, contextualizing objects, and fun ephemera. This exhibition also celebrates Kelvin Smith Library's management of the SPACES archives, since 2016. The exhibition will be on view April 23rd to August 10th, 2018 in the exhibition space (11055 Euclid Avenue, Cleveland, OH, 44106), Monday - Friday, 10am to 4:30pm.

Come with us as we go into the future with provocation!
