Recess’s mission is to support the creative process of the contemporary artist by providing a space for productive activity and a platform for a partnership with the public. By offering artists flexible work/exhibition space, artists are given agency to determine the visibility of their work and the parameters of its presentation.

Free of charge and open to the public, Recess facilitates every-day interactions between artists and the community in order to promote the productive space of the working artist as a site of valuable visual and intellectual interactions. Our endeavors offer critical exposure for the artists we support while fostering a non-alienating environment in which artists and the public can engage in a meaningful exchange of art and ideas.
