Since 1996, Lump has brought rigor and professionalism to the hard driving experimentation and self determination that defined its inception.  Lump is now transitioning into a 501(c)3 non profit organization, so that it may continue as a collaborative, artist-focused space that has the resources to conduct its program without compromise.  

Our mission is to expand the possibilities for artists and curators through the support of ambitious projects in exhibition, performance, research and documentation while broadening the community’s exposure to new artistic practices and dialogue.

Lump has tasked itself with challenging the public’s notion of art by continuing to embrace its mystique through work by artists whose unconventional visions of contemporary art and life, all too often, go unseen.
