Interstitial functions as space between the studio and the commercial gallery for artists to explore ideas related to the creation and consumption of new media.
Interstitial is powered by Shunpike, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.
Interstitial (formerly Interstitial Theatre) was founded in September 2010 by Kira Burge and Julia Bruk after noticing that Seattle had no dedicated exhibition spaces for new media art. At that time Interstitial Theatre’s goal was to provide space and time to contemporary artists to exhibit new media art in Seattle, WA. With this goal in mind Kira Burge and Julia Bruk curated the first seven months of programming in a back closet of gallery Form/Space Atelier with encouragement and support from gallery owner Paul Pauper.
In April of 2011 Interstitial relocated to a warehouse space in SODO and held monthly exhibitions through the Winter of 2012. From 2012 through 2014 Interstitial was run by Kira Burge, Julia Bruk and Julia Greenway and functioned as a curatorial project popping up at various established venues within the region; Henry Art Gallery, Seattle Art Museum, Bumbershoot Festival, SOIL Gallery, LxWxH Gallery, Fred Wildlife Refuge and participating in the Seattle Storefronts Project.
In January 2015 Kira Burge and Julia Greenway opened Interstitial's first dedicate space in the Georgetown neighborhood of Seattle with the support of fellow staff member Matthew Spencer, and numerous volunteers. Beyond hosting monthly exhibitions, Interstitial continues to offer curatorial services to numerous clients both public and private.
Interstitial specialize in light-based and video artwork. Providing comprehensive project management for both temporary and permanent installations.
Our clients count on us to develop a curatorial vision that fits their property's needs.
