A storefront shop and studio for art, design, and research, 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 transparency 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 space in the economy for our work and values.
At Practice Space you’ll find:
A SHOP / A STUDIO FOR PUBLIC PROGRAMS AND VISITING ARTISTS / A LIBRARY
