UNDERGRADUATE SHOW - APPLICATIONS CLOSED, THANKS TO ALL WHO APPLIED!

For Baltimore-area Pandemic Graduates at Current Space

 

Current Space is an artist-run gallery, studio, and outdoor performance space, nourishing an ongoing dialogue between artists, activists, performers, designers, curators, and thinkers. Operating since November 2004, we are committed to showcasing, developing, and broadening the reach of artists locally and internationally.

During the pandemic, few undergraduate students have had an opportunity to show their work in person. We’d love to display your work indoors within the gallery, in our storefront windows, and (pending relevant outdoor submissions) in our outdoor courtyard. All media welcome including but not limited to sculpture, photography, painting, drawing, printmaking, performance, time-based works, fibers, video, sound, collaborative works, etc. Artists and works will be selected based on merit, feasibility, and available space.

 

NOTE: This is a self-install show. Work should be ready to hang. Plan to provide all necessary tech and hanging hardware to install work yourself. The installation dates are June 3rd and 4th.
