MORE INFORMATION HERE!

The Publications and Multiples Fair is an annual exposition of contemporary artist books, prints, publications, sculptures, jewelry, textiles, and works produced in multiple. This event has grown tremendously, from having 15 vendors in its first year to having 150 in its seventh year. Taking up one weekend in the spring, PMF acts as a beacon for artists across the country. People traveling from both coasts come together to sell the wares they have produced throughout the year and stay for the connections made with makers they may have never met before. In more recent years have we curated additional on-site programming throughout the weekend that includes panel discussions on contemporary identity issues, poetry readings, musical performances, motivational speeches, and artist talks.

Formed in 2009, Open Space is a DIY artist-run gallery and collective located in Baltimore, Maryland.

HAIR CLUB (with Kelly Lloyd) 4:00-5:00pm
Hair Club would like to invite participants to use a variety of materials to construct their own merkin, or pubic wig. Merkins were originally worn by sex workers, but are now used as decorative items by people of all genders, and for “modesty” purposes by actors. During this event, while constructing our merkins with a variety of materials including sequins, fringe, felt, faux-fur, yarn, ribbon and glitter paper, we will engage participants in a discussion around body hair, specifically pubic hair, looking at the vilification of women’s body hair and the portrayal of pubic hair in pop culture. This workshop will explore a humorous DIY strategy to processing culture’s dictates about where hair should and should not be, while Kate Bush plays in the background. Co-founded by Suzanne Gold, Kelly Lloyd, and Michal Lynn Shumate, HAIR CLUB is an interdisciplinary, research-based art collective whose work is centered around the multivalent topic of HAIR.

Formed in 2009, Open Space is a DIY artist-run gallery and collective located in Baltimore, Maryland.

 


Knotted Gate Chant Cycle

MSHR
Open Space is thrilled to present Knotted Gate Chant, an installation by MSHR in conjunction with PMFVIII.

Knotted Gate Chant Cycle will be up from April 1st through May 6th with gallery hours Saturdays 1-5pm.

Join us for a light and sound performance by MSHR on Saturday, April 1 from 7-10 pm at Open Space, 512 W. Franklin Street.

MSHR is the art collective of Birch Cooper and Brenna Murphy. We build and explore systems to reveal pathways toward ecstatic sensory experience. We work at the intersection of digital sculpture, analog circuitry, and ceremonial performance. Our physical projects revolve around analog light-audio feedback systems built from macro-arrangements of our sculptural synthesizers. On the virtual side, we weave computer generated portraits of inter-dimensional entities and psychedelic realms. These physical and virtual pursuits inform each other deeply, unfolding a hyper-shape that houses both.
