Celebrate our 6th year of Kindling Fund projects on Sunday, January 19th from 3:00p – 5:00p, and toast to a group of artists who represent some of Maine’s most exciting contemporary art practices.

The Kindling Fund supports inventive, artist-organized projects that engage the public and the visual arts in and meaningful ways. This year, SPACE has awarded a total of  $68,500 to 15 independent, artist–organized, Maine-based projects for its 2020 cycle of The Kindling Fund. Funded projects value risk, experimentation, unconventional engagement, critical dialogue, and encourage collaboration.

This year’s grantees are Rachel Alexandrou; Vanessa Anspaugh with collaborators Allie James, Ryan MacDonald and Kristen Stake; Kim Bernard; Caitlin Cameron; Grant Corum; Alexandra Cuadros and Pendeja Studio; Darren Ranco with Jennie Hahn and Cory Tamler; Dan Hawkins; the Bare Portland performance company; Sarah Loftus with collaborator Michel Droge; Pamela A. Moulton with collaborators Chris Akerlind, Maxwell Burns, Alban Maino and Anne Williams; Thalassa Raasch with collaborator Dan Bouthot; Asata Radcliffe with collaborators Jordan Carey, Fred Greenhalgh, Reggie Hodges, Annabelle Richardson and Marco Soulo; Hillary Savage with collaborator Steph Richardson; and Sarah Sockbeson.


Administered by SPACE, The Kindling Fund is one of fourteen nationwide re-granting programs established by the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.

For more information about the Warhol Foundation’s expanded network in 2019, read this Hyperallergic article “The Andy Warhol Foundation Is Expanding Its National Reach” and announces $1.4 million in re-granting giving in 2019.

This Friday, January 31st! Join us for the opening of Both Players Move with Jessica Hankey and Erin Johnson, two artists who blend theatricality and sight-specific video to blur the boundaries between individual lives and sociopolitical realities. 5:30-7p.
