Founded in 2007, Little Berlin is a cooperative exhibition space run by 11 artist members who curate the space using a collaborative, do-it-yourself ethic. Located in Kensington, Philadelphia, Little Berlin is known for its emphasis on month long curated exhibitions and unique, experimental programming. Members support one another to promote artists and ideas beyond our individual art practices. We are open to project proposals and collaborations with local and international community and arts organizations.
Founded in May 2014 by members of Little Berlin, the Annex is a raw, intimate space for performance, film, music, readings, lectures, and workshops. Like Little Berlin’s adjacent gallery, The Annex holds exhibitions and installations, but they are usually shorter than one month and based around programming events like Poems Night, live performances, and occasionally artists-in-residence.
The Annex is also home to Little Berlin’s Zine Library, which is the largest in Philadelphia and houses hundreds of zines, exhibition catalogs, chapbooks, and artist books. Email us to coordinate mail submissions of your zine!
