Genesis is an artist run exhibition space and incubator
located in downtown Milwaukee, WI.
Located in the heart of downtown Milwaukee, WI– Genesis was created as a platform to survey the ever shifting landscape of the midwest city against the backdrop of Post-Industrial America. Created by artists, for artists, we seek to build a diverse network of creatives and thought leaders to foster change, facilitate discourse and serve the needs of Milwaukee's greater creative communities. We are steadfast in our mission to provide support for artists throughout the creative process, and are committed to a better more inclusive Milwaukee.
Genesis is committed to creating an open and affirming environment for creatives. We seek to provide support for practicing artists throughout their career and strive to develop programming that engages the greater Milwaukee creative community.
Did you know Genesis has a namesake? Our roots run deep in the city of Milwaukee's cultural history and we're proud of that. Est. in 1985, Genesis Hair Design was an independently owned hair salon located on the North side of Milwaukee. Thought leaders in the industry–the team at Genesis Hair Design cultivated a diverse, open and affirming environment that was unmatched. And we are proud to carry forward this legacy.
