A storefront research studio for art and design.
Practice Space is a storefront for art, design, and research located in Inman Square, Cambridge, Massachusetts. We are an artist-run space that is part of a movement of people experimenting with the storefront-as-gallery, -school, -studio, -museum, and -community center. By doing our work in a storefront, we are committing to being transparent about the process and labor of creativity. As an independent artist-run space, all of our funding comes directly from our community. As a business, we are committed to sustainability - financial, emotional, physical, and environmental - and to making a space in the economy for our work and values.
At Practice Space you’ll find:
Our design studio
A shop with useful objects made by artists and designers
Visiting artists and other cultural practitioners
Our library of books and zines
