About

Founded by artists in 2008, Yale Union is a non-profit contemporary art center whose curatorial team invites living artists and supports them in the development of exhibitions, performances, lectures, or publications.  

Yale Union currently produces four major exhibitions and eight music performances each year, with dozens of auxiliary programs and attendant publications. 

The non-profit owns the 40,000 square foot nationally registered historic laundry building in which it operates, a unique situation for such a young organization. 

Artist's vision leads Yale Union's decision-making. The organization hands over the keys to its communications, emails, website, invitations, and printed programs, as well as executes performances and exhibitions in ways that often run counter to a cohesive development strategy. This is functionally supported by an unusually adaptable administrative structure, as well as in-house production and fabrication facilities like a woodshop, recording studio, and print shop. The staff, board, and volunteers of Yale Union serve solely to support the proper execution of every aspect of each invited artist's work.
