Alternative to What? Starting Your Own Art Space

Under the guidance of Mark Allen, founder and director of Machine Project; Julie Deamer, founding director of Outpost for Contemporary Art; Lauri Firstenberg, founder and director/curator of LA><ART; Daniel Joseph Martinez, artist and founding director of Deep River, an artists’ gallery experiment that lasted from 1997-2002; and Yoshua Okón, artist and founder of SOMA, a new alternative arts graduate school; artists, graduate students, and post-graduate cultural practitioners will debate the meaning and viability of the so-called “alternative” art space in a contemporary context, and will be invited to workshop their own ideas for art spaces.

Each workshop costs $10 to enroll and includes lunch. Enrollment is limited; please call 310-443-7047 for further information or to reserve your spot.
