FROM 1999-2004 FUGITIVE PROJECTS BROUGHT CHALLENGING NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL ARTISTS TO OUR ART CENTER GALLERY ACTIVATING NASHVILLE’S BURGEONING ART SCENE. WE CLOSED THAT VENUE IN 2005 TO CHANGE OUR FOCUS. FUGITIVE PROJECTS HAS ALWAYS BEEN AN ARTIST ADVOCACY, CURATORIAL RESOURCE AND DATABANK AND WE HAVE CONTINUED THAT TRADITION WITH MORE FOCUS ON EPHEMERAL EXHIBITIONS AND INVOLVEMENT. WITH THE CLOSING OF OUR PERMANENT EXHIBITION SPACE ON HOUSTON STREET WE BEGAN PROJECTING OUT INTO THE ENVIRONMENT EXPANDING OUR DIALOGUE WITH TRAVELING ARTIST INITIATIVES AND MOBILE CURATORIAL PROJECTS.
