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