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 curatorial platform celebrating work that blurs the boundaries between art and design, form and utility. We invite our community to explore the systems of communication brought forth by the intersection of function and artistry. Placed explores how art is arranged in the “real world,” in addition to the conceptual domain of a gallery setting. This gallery supports the evolving practice of art making and craft, showcasing artists whose work remains grounded and resonant amidst a culture of mass production.
In addition to our brick-and-mortar space, Placed is a traveling exhibition series in collaboration with art institutions, sister galleries, both public and private events. We also facilitate original commissions. All are welcome.

Placed is owned and operated by Coryander Friend, a production designer and contemporary art and design curator who lives in Livingston, Montana with her husband and daughter. Before laying roots in Montana in 2020, Friend lived and worked for 15 years in Los Angeles, California, where she founded and curated the boutique design fair, Parachute Market. Placed is her newest curatorial project in Montana, that brings a community based dialogue between the artists she represents and their future collectors.
