Unrequited Leisure is an artist-run gallery in Nashville, Tennessee that focuses on emerging and mid-career artists that explore screen-based approaches to critical and topical investigations. Exhibitions in the gallery are programmed and organized by its members, Chalet Comellas Baker and Clinton Sleeper and the artworks presented are selected through a thematic curatorial framework.

We identify the significance of plurality and diverse voices and since opening in 2019, more than ninety percent of the artists shown at Unrequited Leisure are from historically underrepresented populations in contemporary art, and more than fifty percent are international artists, born outside of the US.
