Offsite-Gallery seeks to collaborate with artists who work outside of the studio context.
Art exhibits are considered off site if they are presented outside the traditional art venues or other cultural institutions. This does not necessarily mean the work is uncurated. More specifically the term implies a project that is considered too perhaps too unconventional to be shown in a gallery situation.
According to the critic Frank Kermode, off site projects are
"… by their very nature artistic gestures that have continuity with non-art environments, art that circumvents gallery space - usually detached and abstract - and goes straight to a public that often has little or no direct experience of art, thus democratizing aesthetic opportunities."
Hence the working barber’s shop situation, where everyday faces are always being considered and observed.
