This sounds really cool

So I just got a mass email from SPACES gallery announcing a new program they are offering. Usually I just delete these sorts of things, but this is actually pretty interesting. I don't know if I'll end up doing any of the "invasions" but I might - especially the July trip to the Modern Art wing of the CMA. Anyway, check it out:

Have you ever visited a museum or gallery and found some of the work hard to grasp? Has a painting or piece of installation art ever approached you on the beach and kicked sand in your face, just to run off with your girlfriend? If at least one of these scenarios applies to you, then Space Invaders is the series for you. Join SPACES as we invade Cleveland's art venues in search of challenging work to tackle and discuss. Participants will learn how to fearlessly analyze and talk about contemporary art.

Think of the invasions as open critiques and evaluations of what you see—an opportunity to hash out what is (or isn't) successful. Discover the best ways to approach and talk about different media and concepts. You will then be equipped to stride into any contemporary museum or gallery with confidence.


As in life and Costco, things are cheaper in bulk. You may register for a single invasion, but if you register for a package of all 4, then you save money. Membership also has its rewards. SPACES Members can purchase a package deal of all 4 events for $15, or they can pay $5 per single event. Non-members can purchase a package deal of all 4 events for $27, or they can pay $8 per single event. As you can see, being a member can save you $12 for a package or $3 for each single event, so consider becoming a member today. Click here for more details, including individual event registration options.

Pre-registration is required. Space is limited to 15 participants per invasion.
