Open Space is an organisation that supports emerging creative practices and promotes dialogue in the arts through an annual programme of projects in unexpected spaces. Explore our 2019 programme here.
Building on its previous projects including exhibitions, events and commissions in unexpected spaces over the past four years, Open Space Contemporary relaunched as Open Space in January 2019, with its first annual programme of ambitious multidisciplinary projects.
This programme, which marks a new chapter, consists of four annually recurring projects informed by a concept that reflects on, and responds to, critical contemporary issues. Each project highlights and supports the work of practitioners from varied creative backgrounds.
