Recently reopened in a Howard Street storefront after a brief homeless hiatus, Current Space has reclaimed its reputation as one of Baltimore’s cultural epicenters. Hosting art exhibitions, music shows, festivals, and performances and offering rented studio space, Current and its co-directors work tirelessly to keep the creativity flowing. Putting on simultaneous shows in its main and smaller galleries, Current has had a busy two-week turnover schedule for proposed exhibitions of photography, installation, and thematic collaborations, as well as curating larger group shows. With its spacious back lot for outdoor events, indoor work space, and an army of passionate volunteers, Current’s exhibitions have been steadily ambitious, smart, and successful.
