Black Cube’s programs are created to benefit artists and engage audiences across the globe. Our experimental exhibitions always begin with artists’ ideas and are intended to support ambitious projects that further the artists’ practice. Black Cube’s programs provide diverse audiences with unique opportunities to experience newly commissioned contemporary art, outside of white museum and gallery walls.
Each Pop Up Exhibition features a site-specific contemporary artwork by an Artist Fellow. Pop Up Exhibitions are the culmination of our year-long Artist Fellowship and occur in unique public spaces. Nomadic and ambitious in nature, each exhibition setting is in a new location.
Rigorously experimental and often temporary, our group exhibitions take place in the Colorado region. Group exhibitions may feature local, national, or international artists, in addition to Black Cube Artist Fellows and Alumni. This program builds the local creative community by fostering new forms of expression and promoting unique exhibition opportunities, outside of the white cube.
Each year, Black Cube invites leading curators, critics, and scholars of the contemporary art world to gather for a symposium. Each symposium delves into a critical topic and is intended to help our community gain a greater understanding of the larger art world, as it relates to Colorado. Over the course of a week, the symposium features public lectures, roundtable discussions, as well as private studio visits with Black Cube Artist Fellows.
A year-long fellowship for today’s artists. Our fellowship program guides artists through the production of an ambitious, new, site-specific artwork. Additionally, we believe in supporting our fellows holistically by providing professional development guidance catered to each artist’s goals and needs.
Black Cube’s Alumni Program is a continuation of our Artist Fellowship, in which we work with previous artist fellows on a project that helps support their practice. This program offers alumni with critical writing for exhibitions, curatorial support, professional development, in addition to grant opportunities.
Talk With Your Mouth Full is an artist-centric community program comprised of monthly brunches intended to connect artists in the Colorado region. Each month over brunch, we invite an artist to speak about their practice or pose a timely art-related topic for discussion. This program provides emerging, mid-career, and established artists an opportunity to meet one another and “talk art” in a convivial, food-filled setting.
Office Hours provide Colorado-based artists with an opportunity to meet one-on-one with Black Cube’s Executive Director + Chief Curator. This program is designed to nurture artists’ sustainability and may feature artwork critiques, professional development, and/or curatorial guidance. Office Hours is intended to create a deeper dialogue between our team and the creative community.
