The Public Space Gallery

Urban interventions and art in public spaces

 

The Public Space Gallery isn't about being a physical gallery with a fixed space. You can find us anywhere, anytime, in any public space. It’s all about urban interventions. This form of art causes an important disruption of everyday life because it breaks down what's known into particles of the unknown with the power to generate a new consciousness. We love to facilitate this by organizing collaborations which produce new interrelations between space, art, artists and its public.
