Since our inception in 2007, OFFspace has staged a dozen exhibitions in unexpected spaces and host galleries. Featuring the work of over 100 artists from across the United States, Latin America, Europe, the Middle East and Asia. Besides being pioneers of site specific curation in the Bay Area, OFFspace has singled itself out by creating shows with an wide range of artists and practices; bringing together emerging, mid-career and established artists, Bay Area and international art makers, as well as diverse genders and races.
To celebrate passing the 10-year mark OFFSpace is proud to present Altered, a show part retrospective and part curatorial experiment. Altered will shift/mutate/evolve throughout the run being “re-curated” weekly by OFFSpace and invited partner curators, featuring a different theme and works with each iteration.
Over thirty artists who have shown with OFFspace throughout our 10+-year career will share work to create a physical library in one portion of the gallery space. OFFspace will then draw from this resource to formulate the first in a series of exhibits. Thereafter, on a weekly basis, guest curators will draw from the library to curate a unique exhibition on a specific theme of their choice. Additionally, the entire library will be available for perusal by the public with the help and supervision of gallery attendants.
Partner curators include Dasha Matsura, San Francisco Director at Spoke Art Gallery (spoke-art.com) Justin Charles Hoover, Founder & Director at Collective Action Studio (collectiveactionstudio.com) and from Aggregate Space Gallery co Directors S. Willis & Conrad Meyers (aggregatespacegallery.org).
