Common Field

a visual arts organizing network

Common Field is a new visual arts organizing network connecting contemporary, experimental, noncommercial artist spaces and projects across the US and beyond.

Common Field provides a platform for visibility, learning, and exchange. Our projects include convenings, research, resources, chapters, forums, and advocacy, with the aim of developing a more accessible and resourced visual arts organizing field.

Common Field’s membership includes alternative art spaces, publications, digital exhibition venues, festivals, residencies, collectives, collaboratives, and individual organizers. These projects and spaces provide interdisciplinary and hybrid forms for visual art production, reception, and exchange. Our members generate independent, responsive, grassroots, artist-centered cultures in the US and beyond.
