Open Space is an artist-run gallery located at 512 W. Franklin St. in Baltimore, MD. Open Space’s mission is to promote a vibrant, visible, and connected contemporary arts community in Baltimore through a consistent curated program of exhibitions, annual festivals, and a wide variety of supplemental events such as lectures, film screenings, and music shows.
The space was founded in 2009 in the Remington neighborhood of Baltimore and grew to include a library and performance space in addition to a spacious gallery. In May of 2013, Open Space was displaced by a two-alarm fire. Open Space continued to work on programming including its two large-scale annual festivals, the Publications & Multiples Fair and the Artist-Run Art Fair, while seeking a new home. As of October 2014, the group has resumed its curatorial practice on West Franklin Street.
We are looking for artists, curators, performers, and friends who are interested in joining us at Open Space.
