For the past year, residents of Baltimore have been bombarded with hype about Light City, a free festival of music and “light art” in the Inner Harbor. The organizers have repeatedly compared it to South by Southwest and Art Basel (two extremely dissimilar events) and secured roughly $4 million in funding from a mix of public and private sponsors.

Open Space Announces Exhibitor List for PMF VII

Art collective Open Space is bringing their seventh anual Publications and Multiples Fair back to the Baltimore Design School. The event brings over 130 exhibitors (mostly artist-run spaces and small publishers) together from multiple cities and is a must-see on the DIY circuit.  The fair opens next weekend, April 9th & 10th, and is free and open to the public from 12:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. 

AFC fans might remember Open Space as the auteurs of “Stupid Bar,” our neighbor at The Artist-Run at SATELLITE in Miami.  If you enjoyed those antics, you’ll be sure to not only love PMF, but be impressed at the collective’s organizational skills beyond cocktails and karaoke (don’t worry, the afterparties promise to be just as riotous). PMF is always one of my favorite art events of the year, and this edition features many more familiar faces from the Artist-Run show (April Camlin, Platform, and Terrault Contemporary to name a few) as well as AFC buddies such as the Bruce High Quality Foundation, Bmore Art, The Contemporary, and TRANSMITTER. It’s a great opportunity to pick up some affordable artwork—I think the most I’ve ever “splurged” was around $80, which netted me two custom bags overflowing with limited edition screenprints, zines, and t-shirts.

Here’s the full exhibitor list:

Art Basel Miami Beach doesn’t technically begin until next week, but myriad satellite fairs, pop-ups, and exhibitions at institutions and artist-run spaces have pretty much turned Miami “Art Week” into a season unto itself. For Miami locals and those who want to check out more than just what you can see at the fairs, this is the guide for you.
