This art team was formed organically during the course of graduate studies at Florida State University organized around producing exhibitions at the Working Method Contemporary Gallery during the summer break in Tallahassee, Florida. This gallery is located in the middle of Railroad Square Art Park, where a bustling and vibrant crowd of thousands gather each and every First Friday to experience art works, food vendors, and live entertainment. This venue provided access to a wide range of viewers of all interests and backgrounds, and the energy of those exhibitions gathered a sort of momentum. This has lead to projects in various other places. We are currently residents of a neighboring gallery, 621 Gallery.
As projects grew in scale and intention, the creative drive and collective vision gave rise to a set of loose guidelines for making works that are contingent on viewer participation and activation, and these same guidelines are refined and re-considered with each new adventure.
We owe a debt of gratitute to Florida State University for providing us with the gallery space, and to all the people that come and activate our pieces. If no one comes, there is no art.

ABOUT GRACE EXHIBITION SPACE for PERFORMANCE ART
Grace Exhibition Space opened in 2006 and is devoted exclusively to Performance Art. We offer an opportunity to experience visceral and challenging performance works by the current generation of international performance artists, whether emerging, mid career or established. Being a Brooklyn loft, our events are presented on the floor, not on a stage, dissolving the boundary between artist and viewer. We believe this is how performance art is meant to be experienced.
"There is no designated stage area, blurring the line between audience and performer, and seating is sparse, as participating in the performance is encouraged. The unknown terrifies you, and yet something, maybe this very feeling, pushes you inside. Welcome to Grace Exhibition Space." Terri Ciccoe. Bushwick Daily January, 2013
"On each night, and in each performance, the human body is redeemed from the mundane and made anew." David Lagaccia, Williamsburg Greenpoint News+Art (June, 2012)
