Seed Space is a lab for site-specific installation, sculpture, and performance-based art in Nashville. We support our program in three specific ways. We bring in nationally recognized art critics to write our exhibition essays. We host regularly scheduled public talks. We facilitate meetings among artists, critics and curators. Through these means we aim to foster an exchange between a growing network of local and national artistic communities, which we believe is one of the best ways to support the careers of emerging artists. Located in the Wedgewood Houston neighborhood of Nashville, TN, Seed Space is the programmatic arm of NCAP, the Nashville Cultural Arts Project, and is made possible with grants from the Tennessee Arts Commission, the Metro Nashville Arts Commission, and the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.
We accept volunteers and interns on a rolling basis. For information on becoming involved with Seed Space through internship, visit our internship page and contact us about your interest.
