AS220 Project Space

Mission


We, the people of Rhode Island, associate ourselves for the purpose of providing a local forum and home for the arts, through the maintenance of residential and work studios, galleries, performance and educational spaces. Exhibitions and performances in the forum will be unjuried, uncensored and open to the general public. Our facilities and services are made available to all artists who need a place to exhibit, perform, or create their original artwork, especially those who cannot obtain space to exhibit or perform from traditional sources because of financial or other limitations.

September Press Release

DOT . DOT . DOT | Kristin Street

Kristin’s recent work has been an examination of space, line, gravity and engagement. An intuitive artist, she responds to materials as a way to explore concepts, physical interconnections and the dynamics of space, line and multiplicity. There have been a number of artistic influences that recur within her research: Gego, Magdalena Fernandez, Cornelia Parker. Each of these women use spatial relationships, multiples, line and most importantly, they play with the idea of what is not physically present as being an integral component of their art making, a path of inquiry Kristin finds fascinating. Born in Providence, Rhode Island, Kristin Street moved through RI public schools, graduating with honors from Hope High School. She went on to earn a BFA in Textiles from the Rhode Island School of Design and later, an MFA from The Maryland Institute College of Art, in Sculpture/Studio Art. While some time has been spent promoting the efforts of other artists through curatorial work, Street has maintained a consistent exhibition schedule over the years, exhibiting in museums and galleries locally, nationally and internationally. She currently lives in Foster, RI.

Their art is not only about expressing beauty and technique, but it is also political and an organic form of pop culture, reflecting their journey through this modern industrialized state of our well-being. Art is a form of pictorial history to give a better understanding to what is being told through all forms of human sensations. Heebe-Tee-Tse Lee was born and raised as an artist within their culture and heritage of the Northeast Coast. Lee is Shinnecock and Niantic/Narragansett of the Algonquin people. They were in New York for most of their life surrounded by art of all mediums from around the world with their mother also an artist enlighten Lee with this same passion of expression.
