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:
