Maus  Contemporary


Maus Contemporary is a contemporary art gallery and space dedicated to supporting creativity with a focus on experimental as well as issue-driven work. Through representing emerging, established, and internationally recognized artists, the gallery is committed to bringing a global perspective to contemporary issues and practices across the Visual Arts. The program consists of exhibitions, print publications, and media outreach, emphasizing on a cross-generational narrative, placing contemporary artists in dialogue with and within the context of historically relevant artists. A rigorous gallery exhibition program, focusing on ten to twelve week long exhibitions, has become a staple of curatorial excellence in the South of the US, and the gallery has received critical attention from the press, including Art Forum and Art in America. The exhibition Mark Flood: FACEBOOK FARM  was selected as one of three finalists for the AICA-USA Award for Excellence in Art Criticism and Curatorial Achievement in the category Best show in a commercial space nationally outside of New York.


The gallery's mission is to offer a platform for experimentation in a culturally difficult environment through five to six gallery exhibitions a year in addition to curated projects and exhibitions abroad.


Maus Contemporary has released over a dozen publications so far, most recently monographs on gallery artists Leslie Smith III, Spanish artist Irene Grau, Peruvian-American artist Catherine Tafur, and American multi-disciplinary artist Melissa Vandenberg.
