Able Baker Contemporary is an artist-run gallery with an open curatorial structure.
Group shows organized by guest curators (artists & otherwise) will set artists in conversation with peers, conspirators, competitors, dissenters, and friends (regional & from away). Curatorial strategies may be geographic, conceptual, historical, documentary, political, play-based, performative, etc. Calls to artists may take the form of assignments or games; a call to curators: propose a show.
Able Baker Contemporary is a traditional white-cube gallery that will have openings with wine and cheese and events that do not exclude the musical and literary arts. The main space will feature monthly and bi-monthly group shows. The mezzanine office will contain a flatfile & small wall representing selected artworks by featured artists; this space will be accessible to collectors, scholars, students, and Interested Parties.
Able Baker Contemporary is located at 29 Forest Avenue, Portland, Maine, 04101...on the Portland Stage block, and within 300 yards of the PMA, MECA, Space Gallery, and Space Studios.
