Big Orbit’s History
Since its inception in 1991, Big Orbit Project Space has been an artist-run arts center dedicated to transcultural, multidisciplinary explorations of contemporary art issues, with its primary focus being the promotion of the art and artists of Western New York.
Through programming that ranges everything from painting and performance art to architectural installations and live sound sculpture, Big Orbit extends the legacy of artistic innovation historically associated with Buffalo, providing a basis for the creation of new boundary-pushing work. The gallery encourages the under-represented, emerging and established artists in the community through solo exhibition opportunities, and curated group exhibits promoting social awareness.
By embracing many artistic disciplines, including visual, performance, and media arts, Big Orbit takes great pride in establishing a creative dialogue between artists and community while raising awareness of the arts developing in Western New York.
