Mission and Past Artists

ModernFormations Gallery and Performance Space was founded in June of 2001, and since then, has been committed to contributing to the growing artistic culture of Pittsburgh, the Penn Avenue arts community, and to the surrounding neighborhoods.

ModernFormations Gallery and Performance Space is dedicated to representing the diverse artistic, musical, and dramatic talent of Pittsburgh. Our goal is to create an atmosphere conducive to bringing interaction and discussion about the arts.  In order to meet this goal, and that of promoting art in Pittsburgh, ModernFormations exhibits a diverse range of media including modern visual art, performance art, music, plays, films, and literary readings.

ModernFormations will continue to give emerging artists, whose talent is greater than their opportunity to exhibit, a chance to show their work in Pittsburgh
