Open Space is a working laboratory for innovative art practices, opening new territories for contemporary art, artists and society in a global context.

Founded in September 1972, Open Space is non-profit artist-run centre located in Victoria, British Columbia. For over thirty years, Open Space has been an entity for professional artists who utilize hybrid and experimental approaches to art-making, as well as a touchstone for young and emerging artists. As an exhibition and performance centre, Open Space reflects the wide diversity of contemporary art practices in Victoria, across Canada and beyond.

The work presented at Open Space is a cross-fertilization of experiences, with artists from disparate geographical locations and cultural sensibilities brought together in a critical dialogue based around contemporary art issues.
