Placed: planted, arranged, settled.
“…an arrangement of things is not just an aesthetic expression; it is a communicational act.”
—Leonard Koren, “Arranging Things”
Placed is a gallery and digital curatorial platform celebrating fine decorative art and its role in fostering community. From our home in Livingston, Montana, Placed embraces the spirit of the West—the desire to explore, to expand, and to become rooted all at once.
Located in the heart of a clay art mecca, Placed is host to many of the most provocative and talented fine art ceramicists in the world, showing sculptural and functional work made in Montana and beyond.
Our name plays on the literal centering of artwork as well as the concepts of home, space, expansiveness, and connection. In addition to our brick-and-mortar space, we sponsor a traveling exhibition series in collaboration with art institutions, sister galleries, public and private events.
We support the evolving practice of art making and craft, showcasing artists whose work remains grounded and resonant amidst a culture of mass production. We specialize in pieces that blur the boundaries between art and design, form and function, and also facilitate original commissions. All are welcome.
