Wow. What a turnout this past Saturday. So many faces
we’ve not seen in years… so many members of our artist family on hand… so
many new faces. Friends flying in from all over. Humbling and uplifting in so
many ways. So many cries of “15 more years”… we will keep it going as long as
you all keep coming out to show love!!! What a night.
Thank you all for coming out to support. Thank you to all who
shared their memories across social media. Our hearts are full and we are
fueled for the new year ahead. We are indeed just
getting started. Get ready for another epic year ahead.
15 Years of Thinkspace will remain on view through
January 25 and showcases new work from 70 of our family members from around the
globe all created on custom 16.5 x 16.5 inch (42×42 cm) wood panels (image area
of 15×15 inches / 38×38 cm) courtesy of Trekell.
The LA Time Daily Pilot features ‘Instruments of Change’ in a piece titled ‘Instruments of Change’ brings Latin American street art to O.C.‘. Thinkspace Project owner Andrew Hosner and the Fullerton Museum Center’s curator Kelly Chidester are interviewed in the piece and give an in-depth look at the collaboration and process involved to open the exhibition. The article also shares insights into the various talented artist whose work is featured in ‘Instruments of Change’.
“There are incredible artists from other regions of South America that we tried to get, but timing didn’t work out,” says Hosner. “So I definitely hope this is the first of many ‘Instruments of Change’ shows.”

We’re turning 15 and a few of our friends have shared some incredible sentiments that are making us blush.
It’s impressive for ANY business to last 15 years, but the art world is even more impressive. The trends, the market, the ebbs and flows of how much social media has changed the way we view and buy art, are all things that have to be taken into account. Think about the last 15 years: stock market crash, Instagram’s emergence as the predominant communication tool, Obama, Trump… it’s the shit even Hollywood (or Orwell) could come up with. And that is what makes Thinkspace Projects, one of the most enduring galleries of outsider and emerging contemporary art, such a fantastic story. From gallery shows in Culver City to curating and supporting museum shows around the world for a new generation of artists, their influence is remarkable. – JUXTAPOZ
“Thinkspace can boast an international household name in contemporary art and new contemporary art. This is due to both its longevity and unique eye to find talent and beauty. As, indeed, for fifteen years in a row, the Culver City based art gallery has offered opportunities to a lot of artists we love, as well as created wonderful partnerships around the world with other actors of the art industry and community. Thinkspace has even widened the sense of these two words, building something closer to a family for artists and art lovers.” – Beautiful Bizarre
A lot have galleries have come and go in the last 15 years in our niche of the art world, but one constant has been the Thinkspace family. Tirelessly promoting their artists with shows at their Culver City location, with collaborative exhibitions with different galleries nationally and internationally, with participation in art fairs around the world, by plugging their artists into mural projects and street art festivals, and perhaps most importantly by garnering institutional support, the gallery has become one the most prominent leaders in the movement.” – Arrested Motion
Join us this weekend, Saturday, January 11th between 6 to 9 pm for the opening reception of 15 Years of Thinkspace.
Thank you to all that came out to the opening reception of our current exhibitions on Saturday, November 8th. It was an incredible evening and great to see so many of the artists in “Re-Beginning” make it out. Congratulations to all those who contributed works for the big PaintGuide curated show, along with Stella Im Hultberg and the Perez Bros on their new body of work.
All three exhibitions remain on view through November 30 and can also be enjoyed via our website. Please stop by if in the Culver City Arts District of Los Angeles.
