At ‘T’ Space, our purpose is the synthesis of the arts with an emphasis on architecture. In our exciting 6th year, we expanded our programs to the new 28-acre T2 Reserve, the T2 Space, and the Ex of IN House. We are also pleased to announce our new educational initiative.
‘T’ Space relies on the generosity of our donors to maintain and grow this unique cultural asset. We would love to include your name as a supporter in our 2016 summary catalogue and on our website. Please donate online or mail a check of support by December 31, 2016.
Below is our mission statement and a record of our programs from 2010 to 2016. We look forward to seeing you at next year’s opening show in May of 2017.
Programs of ‘T’ Space are made possible because of the support of our Patrons, Sponsors, Donors, Friends and Emerging Supporters. Join our growing list of generous Supporters who make ‘T’ Space a sustainable project and a vital force in the Hudson Valley and beyond. ‘T’ Space is a 501c3 non-profit organization and tax deductible contributions can be made here.
‘T’ Space Mission
Poetry, Music, Art, and Architecture
The cross-inspiration of the Arts, a pursuit of fundamental importance through history, is the core purpose of ‘T’ Space. On June 4, 2016, the opening for the Pat Steir installation soared with a memorable poetry reading by Anne Carson, winner of the 2016 ‘T’ Space Poetry Award.
As An Alternative to Market Driven Art
At a time when art has increasingly become a financial instrument, ‘T’ Space is dedicated to reflections on the Art of our time, with the purpose of facilitating living artists in dialogue with the cross-fertilization of ideas.
New Works and Experiment with Collaborators
‘T’ Space fosters hybrid combinations of thought and work. At the opening event on July 23, 2016 poet Nick Montfort read his poem written in relation to Agnieszka Kurant’s artwork in a first time interaction. We hope to continue to commission new works with funding help and contributions.
Nature and Human Connection
On July 2, 2016 at the opening of the Ex of IN House and T2 Space at the T2 Reserve, poet Robert Kelly read from his poetry and composer Jeffrey Lependorf played music, both commissioned in honor of the opening. With three-hundred attending the outdoor event, the connection between the arts, humanity and the natural landscape—and the passion to preserve this forested natural habitat—served as an inspiration to all.
To Provide Enriched Learning through the Arts
‘T’ Space supports engagement in the physical, real-life experience of architectural space and its thought-provoking interconnection to Art and Nature with educational tours that inspire creativity.
