is an evolving host of programs designed to support arts practitioners in the production and presentation of new work. Our aim is to support and create venues for critical discourse around artistic practice, within a spirit of mutualism and hospitality.

We are based at 'the Manse', a property in Enfield, NY, and much of our programming revolves around this place - as a place for retreat, for gathering, and for investigating place, location and site through artistic research and production.









August 29 - 31, 2014
Look for more information in July!


We are pleased to announce the third annual gathering for the development and presentation of new projects at The Manse, a shared property in Enfield, NY - an open site which includes wooded acres, a pond, outdoor kitchen, campsite, yard, garden, and barn. The space and program facilitate conversations, nontraditional exhibition of artworks, collaborations, and expanded fields of research. Participants and visitors are invited to inhabit and together make this particular expression of place, practice, and community.

COMPLIMENTA(III) will be open to visitors:

Saturday, August 30 12pm - 10pm
