ON THE GROUND FLOOR (OTGF) is an alternative art space hosting exhibitions in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. A division of Story Rebels, OTGF meets in pop-up locations where contemporary art meets literature. Our story began on the ground floor of a two-story residence in South Los Angeles. In our original space, works of nearly seventy-five global emerging artists were presented over the course of two years.

Our exhibitions, talks, readings, happenings, and workshops seek to foster meaningful conversations about contemporary art and literature, create organic connections for artists and writers, and preserve space for curatorial experimentation and literary exploration. 

Malika Ali Harding is co-founder & curator.
