Charlotte Street presently occupies three street-level storefront, exhibition, and performance spaces.
Paragraph gallery (23 E. 12th) is an architecturally-awarded, approximately 1000-square-foot space well suited for presenting a wide range of work, from one-person shows to curated group exhibitions, as well as for hosting public programs, special events, receptions, screenings and intimate performances. This street-level, storefront space faces 12th Street, a busy thoroughfare in downtown Kansas City.
The adjacent Project Space (21 E. 12th) is separated from Paragraph by moveable walls on tracks that may be positioned to entirely separate the two venues, or else to open flow between them. This smaller space is ideally suited for installations and smaller exhibition and multi-disciplinary projects.
La Esquina is a 2500 square foot, high-ceilinged, white box/black box, conducive to staged performances – dance, theater, music – as well as large-scale exhibitions and installations, video screenings, public programs and bigger events. The space is equipped with two 14-foot moveable walls, multiple floor and ceiling outlets, track lighting, and two bathrooms. Garage doors on opposite sides of the space allow for opening the space to the city, creating a flow between indoor and outdoor activities.
La Esquina is an aqua blue building located on Kansas City, Missouri’s far Westside, just north of Southwest Boulevard. If heading west from the Crossroads on Southwest Boulevard, it is located west of Summit (past la Bodega and Royal Liquor.) Just before the railroad bridge underpass, veer right onto 25th Street and into the parking lot.
Studio facilities provide free studios to artists for one-year terms. Town Pavilion is a private space reserved for these candidates. For more info, contact Pat Alexander.
