Happeningz: Event Series

Proof Gallery is now accepting proposals for events from artists working in time-based, live, performative or other ephemeral media for the series Happeningz.

Happeningz is an events series dedicated to enriching and bringing together audiences within Boston’s arts community. As a non-profit experimental gallery space, Proof features work unbound from commercial considerations, providing a platform for emerging, unknown and established artists, thinkers and doers. Our unique perspective and small local space obliges us to take risks.

Happeningz hopes to begin conversations, make connections, encourage community, ask questions and maybe even laugh out loud on occasion.

-Description of proposed project (may include the work in question, current/past works, or any combination of this). Please be as specific as possible. Refer to the floor plan at left for site sensitive proposals.

-Materials list pertaining to proposed event. Please note that Proof is unable to provide equipment or materials aside from space and basic lighting. For specific enquiries, contact or williamatproof(at)
-Samples of previous work, supporting media and/or other documentation relating to the project denoted in the proposal. Media can range from sound and video to notebook excerpts or other forms of drafts
