Counterpath is a publisher, gallery and event space, and bookstore. As a publisher, Counterpath was founded in 2006 and has published nearly 50 titles to date. Its gallery and event space was opened in late 2010 at 613 22nd Street near downtown Denver, Colorado, hosting thus far over 100 exhibitions, performances, and events. Its bookstore, which is part of the event space, carries titles published by small and independent presses.
Counterpath engages the work of writers and artists who are interested in linguistic and visual interventions in contemporary global culture. It is driven by a broadly conceived mission and strives to encompass new conceptions of what compelling work can mean. It also actively looks for work by writers and artists—including groups such as minorities and women—who are typically under-represented in such venues or media outlets.
Support for Counterpath, a 501(c)3 nonprofit, comes from grant funding from public and private sources, individual donations, the sale of its publications, and the operation of its bookstore.
