Personal View / World View: There's a lot happening in the world now, turning our lives inside-out. Grass-roots movements world-wide remind us to think globally and act locally. Artists are the coal mine canaries of contemporary culture. How does your art examine our shared conditions, experiences and zeitgeist? Do you see yourself from / on the inside or outside?

119 Gallery promotes contemporary and new media art, innovative ideas and cutting-edge techniques with a rich and diverse program of exhibitions, performances and community-based arts services. We welcome everyone to explore and experience new, innovative art.
