MISSION

Make Space (2010–2016) was an artist-run online platform and curatorial initiative that explores the practices of experimental contemporary artists. Conceived as a conceptual space for artists to showcase their ideas and processes, Make Space featured artists through the production of writing, exhibitions, and public programs. We worked with artists on a recurrent basis, allowing us to develop critical content and programs centered on the artist, rather than through the established conventions of the art industry.

Our mission was to expand the public understanding of the artistic practice by investigating a diversity of art making and conceptual concerns as well as the condition of being an artist today. Our aim was to write, curate, and organize through an intersectional lens, committed to promoting artists of all races, ethnicities, cultures, classes, abilities, sexual orientations, and genders.
