About Us

The Jersey Art Exchange

The Jersey Art Exchange is a contemporary art space with a mission to fortify the Jersey City art community, by re-imagining the urban spaces of the Monticello & MLK area. JAX will provide a venue for critically engaging exhibitions, nurturing local artists, and educating the next generation of artists. JAX is an intermingling of communities of hybrid cultural identities and overlapping forms of expression.

Our Mission

Since 2014, we have been working with local educators, community leaders and artists to create an arts space for the Monticello/MLK Area. Our vision includes a contemporary gallery, community space and a Youth Media Arts & Technology Center.

This space will help to fortify the existing Jersey City art community, by providing a venue for critically-engaging exhibitions and by educating the next generation of artists and media makers through innovating education programs.
