Knoxville Performing Arts Exchange

MISSION: Our mission is to provide a stable, affordable venue for performing arts productions and support for artists of all experience levels and backgrounds, and to enrich the cultural life of our community through improved arts access, education and outreach.


Statement of Purpose: We want to support local performing artists by providing the basic infrastructure and utilities (e.g. stage, lighting, and sound) in a stable, supportive environment combined with audience convenience and comfort. We believe these provisions will allow performing arts groups of all types and levels to focus more of their resources and efforts on artistic quality, enabling them to expand their audiences, and by extension, their programming.

VISION: The KNOXVILLE PERFORMING ARTS EXCHANGE (KPAX) is overseen by Carolyn Corley as part of MODERN STUDIO, a flexible entertainment venue providing the basic infrastructure and resources for performing arts groups to engage, excite and inspire Knoxville audiences.

An independent, affordable and accessible venue for performing arts productions.
