Overnight Projects is a nomadic, artist-run exhibition initiative whose mission is to expand the contemporary art conversation in Vermont, creating bridges to larger contemporary art communities by inviting artists to develop works that respond to and activate non-traditional spaces. We work with local, national, and international artists to develop ephemeral installations, performances, and socially engaged artworks that activate historically rich places —industrial, institutional, commercial, domestic, religious — in a post-studio era. We aim to facilitate site-responsive works that shift viewers' assumptions of a site’s function and value.
Our mission revolves around a dynamic relationship between concept, context, and material. We engage in broad possibilities in and definitions of contemporary art that exist outside of the traditional exhibition spaces of commercial galleries, with a deep commitment to collaborating with and supporting underrepresented artists.
