Welcome to TYPOLOGY, a new not-for-profit project space for curatorial and artistic experimentation.
Opened in 2013, TYPOLOGY is an independent curator-led initiative, with programming that foregrounds collaboration, critical perspectives, and community outreach in the production of EXHIBITIONS, EDITIONS, and related EVENTS.
About our EXHIBITIONS
As an intimate venue for exhibitions, our program emphasizes highly focused art and curatorial projects with an eye toward stimulating cross-disciplinary dialogue between artists, art forms, ideas, images, objects, and environments.
About our EDITIONS
Through our publishing program, each show is documented in an exhibition catalogue with original curatorial essay. Affordable limited-edition prints are also produced in collaboration with exhibiting artists as an invitation to beginning collectors.
About our EVENTS
Through an inclusive and varied program of events including both kid– and adult-friendly talks, screenings, workshops, parties, performances and more, TYPOLOGY seeks to enrich the exhibition experience and encourage active audience participation in our projects and programming.
Through our nascent guest curator program (launching soon!), TYPOLOGY provides opportunities for independent curators to mount fully realized exhibitions within a critical framework. In the process we seek to build curatorial community and resources for the exchange and expansion of ideas on contemporary culture and the modes and methods of exhibition-making.
With a thematic focus on critically engaged, collaborative and cross-disciplinary practices, underrepresented artists and art forms, and community outreach and education in art and exhibition-making, TYPOLOGY seeks to engage and inform audiences from all walks of life.

About the Name
We are often asked about our name, TYPOLOGY. First of all, it’s not TYPOGRAPHY!
There will be more on the story behind our name coming soon. :)
