GRIN is a nomadic curatorial effort by Corey Oberlander and Lindsey Stapleton. 


From 2013 - 2018, GRIN was an artist-run gallery located in Providence, Rhode Island presenting an interdisciplinary program focused on emerging and underexposed artists. Directed by Corey Oberlander and Lindsey Stapleton, GRIN is located at The Plant in the historic Olneyville District of Providence, Rhode Island. It was founded in 2013 as a space for artists to develop and exhibit their work with a steady curatorial hand.

Our intent is to develop an intellectually demanding yet aesthetically engaging program; consistently presenting emerging artists working across mediums. Our hope is to stimulate fresh dialogue while continuing to promote the development of the local creative community. Our mission is to support the careers of underexposed artists with a devotion to process and conceptual advancement.
