This Q&A column focuses on the indeterminate borders between off-/project-/artist-run spaces and the people that keep them going [#Off Space Q&A]
427 was opened in 2014 by artists Kaspars Groševs and Ieva Kraule-Kūna. Since then the aim has been to frequently show art, to uncover signs, to cast nets, and to exchange with confabulations and apophenic experiences. As of the very beginning of 2021, 427 has hosted 48 shows, not counting events, performances, concerts, and other occasions of exchange. Since 2016, 427 has been run by Kaspars Groševs and Marta Trektere.
