The next week is a good time to do some art-seeing on the westside of downtown Baltimore. Michael Jones McKean’s commission from The Contemporary has transformed an old department store into a dystopian museum and it’s teriffying and great. You can check it out by appointment until May 31st, when it will be deinstalled. Luckily some of the city’s strongest artist-run spaces are within a few blocks of the show and also tend to accommodate by-appointment viewings. I checked out three openings last weekend: Beki Basch’s trippy Vision Quest Lundi: Flush / Flood at Current Gallery, Hein Koh’s technicolor wonderland Joy & Pain at Platform, and the group show Photo Flesh at Terrault Contemporary featuring three international genre-bending photographers from the Birmingham School of Art.

Satellite brings its fun brand of immersive, DIY-centric art fair making to South Beach. Don’t worry, it’s still a weird and wonderful outlier in an otherwise crappy week.

Do you believe the children are the future? What about their future pasts? At Maryland Art Place we checked in on Young Blood, a survey of recent area MFA grads, including DIY Star Trek and paintings corrupted like future JPEGs. Upstairs at Terrault Contemporary, Kaita Niwa time travels with the magic of CGI and a creepy child avatar.

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:

We’re pleased to announce that Art F City is launching a new project space/curatorial platform called Fine Art Gallery. Fine Art Gallery will be primarily based out of Brooklyn, but we’re kicking off our programing with a booth in Tiger Strikes Asteroid’s Satellite Show during Art Basel Miami Beach 2015.

We’ll disclose more details about our project in the coming weeks, but we’re pretty excited about the new art fair, which will feature international artist-run spaces and collectives in Miami Beach’s defunct Ocean Terrace Hotel. Tiger Strikes Asteroid released the exhibitor list today, and we’re happy to report that it includes many of the galleries who participated in Baltimore’s Artist-Run Art Fair this summer, which we christened “The Art Fair that Doesn’t Suck”.
