Artspace’s 30th Anniversary Artist Retrospective is a building wide exhibition that celebrates the strength of the artists at the heart of our organization. These exhibitions present the history of our institution while demonstrating the ways that we continue to move forward.

As part of the Retrospective, the Upfront Gallery showcases selected artists who have been involved in Artspace’s residency programs over the last two decades.

Many thanks to Duke Energy and Zaytoun Law Firm for their support of our 30th Anniversary Retrospective exhibitions and programming. 

Catalog of artwork available for purchase online is available here.

Site-Specific Installation:
Tedd Anderson

Davie St Entrance

Tedd Anderson’s mural features the iconic “dry space” characters for which the artist is known set in a landscape filled with swirling, topographic lines, jagged edges, and meditative objects and shapes. A banner with a poem scrawled on its surface runs through the piece, bringing the imagery into a cohesive whole.
