Circuitous Succession is an ongoing contemporary art exhibition series founded by Jason Miller on Broad Avenue. Since its 2013 inception the series has taken on the transformation into art gallery and exhibitions in alternative spaces. Miller curates Masonic Contemporary at Memphis Scottish Rite and Circuitous Succession Gallery at Exceed. Working with contemporary artists of international and regional renown, as well as emerging artists, the mission of the series is to curate a circuitous path of contemporary art exhibitions in the spirit of experimentation, mystery, and the avant-garde.
Discovery, the intuitive process, and the materialization of artists’ visions in all mediums are welcome to participate in this series. Gallery director and curator Jason Miller accepts inquiries from artists and answers in acceptance within two weeks of review. Due to the high volume of artist submissions, only selected artists will be contacted for representation. Circuitous Succession is a commercial art gallery that represents a select ilk of advanced level artists, but remains open to emerging artists post MFA or advanced in studio art practice experience.

Representing the Richard Knowles Estate, Avok Gokturk Estate, and a select few important contemporary artists, the Circuitous Succession Series provides the Memphis, TN community with imaginative and engaging original art exhibitions available to the public and the collector base.
In July of 2013 curator Jason Miller launched the first of what would become a seventeen part exhibition series, which would consist of sixteen solo shows held at Gasoline Gallery in Memphis' Historic Broad Avenue Arts District and spanning from over four months until its finale show held on November 22, 2013.
One year later Miller orchestrated a group exhibition that expanded beyond the sixteen original artists into forty-four in an exhibition titled Circuitous Succession: Epilogue, and featured fifty-seven artworks all within the Scottish Rite Cathedral of Memphis. The linking of unique artworks with the perplexing presence of historically charged spaces was a constant throughout the two year series of experimental shows in two parts of Memphis.
Ultimately, thousands of visitors have attended the series, with over 350 attending the opening reception of the group exhibition alone to view the artworks in juxtaposition with the four stories of the Scottish Rite that now is home to Masonic Contemporary Museum. That led to two followup survey exhibition, Circuitous Succession Epilogue (CSE ll) & Circuitous Succession Epilogue lll (CSE lll). Ultimately, over fifty exhibitions in the series to date.
Since its conception, the Circuitous Succession Series has curated alternative spaces and white cube gallery environments. Headquartered at 825 Union Ave with Masonic Contemporary and 1789 Kirby Parkway Circuitous Succession, the series also extends to include satellite gallery spaces in Memphis communities. As project founder and curator Jason Miller represents mid-career to established artists, while periodically introducing select emerging artists into the mix.
Exhibitions are free and open to the public. Artworks are available to collectors. Visit 1789 Kirby Parkway to collect original works or to view the exhibition presently on exhibition.
