Snake House is an artist-run collaborative based in Vermont dedicated to supporting underrepresented artists through exhibitions, performances, screenings, and other events and projects. 

We promote the exchange of ideas through unique programming, embracing work that presents challenging and provocative contemporary content that is outside of, or directly eschews, the predominant commercial system.



Single Channel VT explores the moving image and time based media through Artist Curated Screenings and an Annual Video Festival. 

  • Artist Curated Screenings highlight the history, practitioners, and genres of the moving image and time based media. Offering insights through the lens of artistic affinities and influence into the varied thinking and making processes contemporary artists engage with, this series  showcases the work of an artist who also presents the work of another artist they are inspired by, or in conversation with. We appreciate the importance of many perspectives and the potential for meanings to multiply, shift, and deepen through collaborative viewings and discussions.

  • The Annual Video Festival is a curatorial project where we invite submissions through an international open call. Over a two day period we present work that responds to current themes and discourses in time based media. 

For details about our programming please see PAST EVENTS.

Poach: A Snake House Cookbook - a limited edition print publication with contributions of recipes, essays, and images from artists participating in Snake House VT programming. Poach is published biennially and also available digitally.

Recognizing that many existing systems of power, including arts organizations, grant privilege and access unequally, we seek to engage with artists and their work without regard to, and with respect of, their race, class, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, gender identity & expression, geography, citizenship status, religion and mental or physical ability.

We love discourse that disposes of patriarchal and antiquated hegemonies, and the radical notion that art can be a space for equity and difficulty, quiet success and epic failure. We also love a good sense of humor. 

Snake House VT occupies the unceded lands of the Abnaki, Mahican, Pennacook and other indigenous peoples.

We are a 501 (c) 3 not-for-profit organization. Your tax free contributions allow Snake House events to remain free and open to the public.
