Please use the link below to learn about the most current 2022 gallery programming:
The Middle Eastern program for the 2022 calendar year will focus on Middle Eastern themes and issues. Artists from different disciplines will demonstrate a variety of approaches to visual representation, performance, and graphic design. The exhibitions that compose the program will be complemented by academic round table discussions which will take place within the didactic visual environments that we establish. Our goal is to raise awareness of the Middle East and connect the university with Middle Eastern communities in the larger Nashville population to enhance and promote the university’s community engagement.
Space 204 is back to operating on a regular gallery business hours. Gallery Hours are Monday-Thursday 10am to 4:30pm. Currently, Space 204 visits can be made by appointment by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 615-343-0237.
