Center Space Project
What is Center Space Project
Center Space Project (CSP) is the student-run organization associated with the UT Visual Arts Center. CSP organizes and hosts a number of events including:
- Exhibitions in the VAC Center Space Gallery
- INMATERIAL, an arts publication
- Visits to local galleries and museums
- Travel to arts locations around Texas
Who can get involved?
As an organization, Center Space Project draws its members from across campus. CSP welcomes current UT students from all departments, both at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
Why should I get involved?
Center Space Project provides opportunities for any student interested in getting involved in the larger artistic community. CSP works to create dialogues between students, curators, critics, gallerists, and artists. CSP is an organization of students who are passionate about creating an environment in which art can be discussed, experienced, and analyzed. The collaborative process of creating successful exhibitions, events, and publications allows CSP members to draw from their own interests and skills to aid in the success of the group. CSP draws its strength as an organization from its members, so we are always interested in adding to our community.
"Working with the VAC was the first time I had the opportunity to experience the inner workings of a fully-staffed and professional non-profit space. Installing artwork can be a very draining experience, so it was great to have a team of preparators available because I was able to spend more time thinking about the curation of the pieces rather than the technical details. Having Center Space officers and VAC staff constantly checking in with me really raised the stakes and pressured me to perform at my best."
- Ray Delgadillo, Curator of the CSP exhibition Nation of Fear
