Borderless is a membership program for those who are committed to supporting the work of American and international contemporary artists, and who believe that a thriving international arts community is key to addressing the major challenges of our time. Your contribution underwrites the development of new works-in-progress by notable rising and established international artists during their residencies at 18th Street Arts Center, who are global ambassadors to artist communities around the world.

Through Borderless, you will have exclusive access to programs that unveil the depth and importance of artist communities around the world through the eyes of influential international artists. 

Each quarter, we will focus on a different region, with artist-designed cultural experiences including live virtual discussions with international artists, artist tours of their studios and communities on-the-ground, and cultural exchange programs. Our first focus in 2021 will be on Yogyakarta, Indonesia, with experiences designed by artist Mella Jaarsma unveiling the dynamic artist and artisanal communities of that city. In Summer of 2021 we will present an additional Borderless program. Stay tuned for more details!


From January – December 2021 we will be offering one year trial memberships to ALL of our donors, in any amount. Be sure to donate today.

Your membership can be fulfilled through a one-time gift or through a monthly automatic payment. Members can also elect to join as a sustaining member to have their membership automatically renewed, annually.

Sign-up today to demonstrate your commitment to contemporary art around the world.
