Art in General hosts ground-breaking exhibitions; public programs that focus on critical and timely issues in artistic and curatorial practice; and a renowned residency program that supports early-career artists and curators from around the world.

The organization has a long history of supporting artists early in their careers. From Glenn Ligon in 1991, to Marina Abramović in 1993, to Gabriel Orozco in 1994, Sharon Hayes in 2005, Postcommodity in 2017 and countless others. Art in General is often at the forefront of giving artists their first New York solo exhibitions.

Art in General artists have gone on to be included in the Whitney Biennial, Documenta, Istanbul Biennial, and the Venice Biennale, among others, as well as in exhibitions at major institutions in New York abroad, such as MoMA, the New Museum, Tate Modern, and many more.
