||About Open SpaceOpen Space is an artist-run gallery located at 512 W. Franklin St. Baltimore, MD. Open Space’s mission is to promote a vibrant, visible and connected contemporary arts community in Baltimore through producing a consistent curated program of exhibitions, annual festivals and maintaining 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 May of 2013, Open Space was displaced by a two-alarm fire. Open Space continued to work on programming including the large scale events the Publications and Multiples Fair and the Alternative Art Fair while seeking a new location for gallery exhibitions. Open Space moved into their new location in October of 2014. Open Space’s core curatorial perspective is variety; because the gallery is run as a collective, members bring in various backgrounds and interests which creates a diverse calendar of shows including a wide range of mediums and points of view. Open Space shows local, national and international artists and produces events with attendance ranging from 50-50,000 people. Open Space is made possible by the love and hard work of its members and by the supportive and fruitful cultural community that exists in Baltimore. Current members include: Chris Day, Margo Benson Malter, Nick Peelor, Jasmine Sarp, Conor Stechschulte, Brendan Sullivan, Pete Razon and Colin Alexander.openspacebaltimore.com
