Artists who have organized their own exhibitions feel that one distinct advantage is their control over how the work is seen. With most artist-organized exhibitions there are no pre-imposed curatorial themes and fewer restrictions. In some cases safety, security, and other restrictions are imposed by the owners of the property where the work is exhibited. However, in all cases the artist- organizers expressed the feeling that these shows were more experimental and provided artists more freedom to try out new ideas. – Jane Ingram Allen, Sculpture Magazine, 1996.
