About Waiting Room

Waiting Room is a non-fixed platform intended to support artists through visual and personal networks. Born out of a start-up ethos, Waiting Room insists that artists can bypass the traditional gallery model and grow their own audiences through genuine relationship-building. The duration and focus of this program and space will be responsive to the changing values of artists, audiences and patrons. At present, Waiting Room produces exhibitions and public programming at Gallery 71.

About Gallery 71

Gallery 71 is an artist-run gallery space at 71 France. Located in the heart of Edina, the gallery contributes to art and dialogue around issues including the stigma of the suburbs, the myth of the artist, new rules for the artist-run spaces, how we live with art (and artists), urban planning, and the importance of being a good neighbor. Historically, Gallery 71 hosted four exhibitions a year, curated by Minnesota based artist, Mary Bergs. The gallery will continue to host four exhibitions annual and forthcoming exhibitions will be curated by Jehra Patrick, Katayoun Amjadi, Mara Durva, and Leslie Barlow, and will be produced through Waiting Room
