2019 POP UP SERIES
Doublespace would like to invite you to our 2019 Pop Up Series! This exciting new series takes a curated group of artists separated into seven unique pairs and encourages them to collaborate within the confines of a compact, tight-knit, space just under 100 square feet. Our hope is that this unique challenge will provide an opportunity and platform for Denver creatives to explore new ideas, create new connections and reach an uncommon audience. The 2019 Doublespace Pop Up Series is certain to impress and repeat. Be sure to pop in and say hello, see some of your favorite Denver artists and discover something new. Together, we will begin to stretch the fabric of contemporary art in Denver, Colorado.
