Waiting Room

Website: www.waitingroom.com
Contact: [email protected]
Director: Kristina M. Johnson
Founder: Jehra Patrick
About: "Waiting Rooms are commonly a part of a building, where people sit or stand until the event which they are waiting for happens and begins. Galleries, while a clean space to best showcase artwork, bear formal resemblance to waiting rooms, and similarly enough, this transitional space is also a waiting room for artists and artworks. Artwork waits for an audience, a review, a sale, a response. Artists wait for their next show, notifications for acceptance, for their next career step, recognition and, worst of all, to 'be discovered.’ Waiting Room is an exhibition space, an art consultancy, and a call to action to no longer be passive, waiting artists. Founded by artist Jehra Patrick in 2014, Waiting Room is not a commercial gallery, but rather a new, non-fixed platform intended to support artists through visual and personal networks. Waiting Room insists that artists can bypass the traditional gallery model and grow their own audiences through genuine relationship-building. The duration and focus of this program and space will be responsive to the changing values of artists, audiences and patrons. Waiting Room is also a Fugazi song."
