Decentralized is operated from Mana Contemporary in Jersey City, and draws energy from its concentration of artists, activities, and ideas.
Founded in 2011, Mana Contemporary is dedicated to providing a platform for contemporary art and artists through exhibitions, studio programs, and public programs. Mana’s community network began in New Jersey and has since expanded to include Mana Chicago (2013) and Mana Miami (2017). Mana Contemporary continues to create new partnership opportunities that explore the intersection of contemporary art, design, new technologies, and music.
Mana Decentralized is a membership-based career development platform designed for artists and art professionals. Rooted in the power of shared information and resources it functions as a network of advocacy and support with Mana Contemporary as its base.
Members pool their knowledge and skills to expand and augment their practices, wielding the power of collective bargaining to boost their careers, access helpful benefits, and raise the profile of the arts as both sustainable individual occupation and visionary collective project.
Are you developing a project or in town for an exhibition and need a temporary workspace? Mana Decentralized offers members access to pop-up studios at Mana Contemporary’s three locations for only $250 per week or $900 a month. Open to all members.
