Tussle stands as a testament to the evolving discourse surrounding contemporary artistic practice. Initiated in Toronto in 2013 and subsequently transplanted to the vibrant milieu of New York City under the direction of Laura Horne, this platform has emerged as a locus of critical inquiry and creative intervention.

Since 2020, Laura Horne has spearheaded Tussle Projects, embodying the curated exploration of artistic expression at the core of Tussle's ethos. Here, the boundaries of traditional exhibition spaces are transcended, facilitating a dialectical engagement with emergent forms and ideas. Notably, the collaborative endeavor 'On the Edge of the Infinite,' orchestrated alongside Steven Pestana and Sophia Sobers, underscores Tussle's commitment to fostering immersive encounters with contemporary art.

Central to Tussle's mission is a focus on artistic innovation and experimentation, shedding light on the diverse practices employed by artists to push the boundaries of their respective mediums. By eschewing traditional categorizations, Tussle endeavors to offer a nuanced understanding of the complexities inherent in contemporary artistic expression. Through rigorous inquiry and dialogue, Tussle aims to redefine the parameters of art criticism, offering a fresh perspective on the ever-evolving landscape of contemporary art.
