Threewalls Solo Exhibition

SOLO exhibitions are selected by a rotating advisory panel made up of local emerging through established artists that represent different disciplines in contemporary art. Selected artists are supported with a stipend and since 2010, an full color exhibition brochure with accompanying essay by a guest writer. Threewalls staff support the artist in curating their exhibition, but projects are artist driven.

There are no upcoming Threewalls Solo Exhibition exhibitions right now.
