Founded in Lviv in 2012, Open Group is a collaborative organization whose projects highlight sites for artistic expression and the relationship between artists and viewers. Featured in the Ukrainian Pavilion of the 2015 Venice Biennale, Open Group collaborates with artists to carve out temporary spaces to exhibit and produce art, creating a sort of roving residency and gallery. The organization’s primary concern is to enable meaningful spaces for artistic inquiry, as well as to spark discussions about how such temporary sites can prevail within the existing infrastructure.
