The Glenville Exchanges

The Glenville Exchanges is a cultural exercise that brings artists and audiences together to explore contemporary social issues. The neighborhood’s attributes provide a rich context for these dialogues and lay a foundation for exploring An American City. The texture of this urban area of Cleveland provokes discovery, debate, and critical thought. Through presentations, lectures, and discussions, these exchanges stimulate a deeper understanding of issues and trends informing artistic practice today. Crucially, the environment in which these conversations take place welcomes the contributions of audiences often left outside the gates of contemporary art.
