History + Concept
Young Space began as a blog, as a way for curator/founder Kate Mothes to connect with artists and exhibitions in Scotland during postgraduate study at the University of Edinburgh.
After she moved back to Wisconsin, USA, it grew into a nomadic project platform, where it has taken the shape of numerous collaborative projects, in addition to the online platform. After going on hiatus for several months, it was re-launched in October 2016 with a new format, featuring original interviews and other content. Since then, it has grown exponentially, leading to a brand new website relaunch and series of projects in March 2018.
Young Space is, first and foremost, an independent curatorial project organized by Kate Mothes. The online platform continues to emphasize new and exciting work by early-career and emerging artists. Exhibitions are coordinated nomadically, nationally and internationally, in collaboration with artists and spaces. An artist-in-residence program is planned, beginning in 2019. Young Space continues to expand and reconfigure in response to artists’ input and participation.
Currently based in Northeast Wisconsin (USA)
