IS A GALLERY promotes and exhibits international and domestic artists, designers, scholars, and writers. As a platform, IS A GALLERY is committed to supporting practice-driven communities. In addition to the professional handling and promotion of both emerging and established practitioners, IS A GALLERY offers opportunities for cross-media and cross-practice conversations that may not otherwise occur. Beyond well-considered gallery programming, IS A GALLERY also uses its web, print, workshop, and other situational resources to showcase scholars and educators as well as designers and artists. This approach is guided by a sensitivity to context, possibility, and the future of practice.
