The Open Space platform as part of the Armenia Art Fair is designed to present contemporary art within a larger context and scale, not through galleries, but through individual artists, curatorial projects, and off-spaces.

Open Space takes a new approach every year. The last edition was online, due to the pandemic and the impossibility of exhibiting within a physical space. This year the focus is on installation art and utilizes the outdoor area of the Mergelyan Institute (Yerevan Computer Research Development Institute) and the Yerevan Expo Center, where Armenia Art Fair is taking place, to present installation projects related to the space, history and context of the Mergelyan Institute.
