Excited to share we will be issuing print editions later this week with both Gustavo Rimada and Stom500 – the winners of our big #OtterThinkspaceContest over on our Instagram page. With over 300 entries, the contest was a big success and we wanted to do something cool around it.
A third of each print sale will be donated to POV Evolving who have converted their downtown LA print studio into a face shield and mask production studio, manufacturing medical protective equipment (PPE) to assist our healthcare workers.
If you’d like to donate, and can not purchase a print, check out their GoFundMe page.
Check out all the submissions on our Instagram under the hashtag #OtterThinkspaceContest and we look forward to enjoying everyone’s submissions for our new contest #ThinkspaceHappyPlace over the month ahead (contest ends May 1).

HUNTZ LIU Subtraction On view April 4 – April 25, 2020
Concurrently on view in the Thinkspace project room is “Subtraction”, featuring new works from Huntz Liu. The artist works with a straight edge and knife, cutting and layering the paper to expose geometric/abstract compositions. These compositions are comprised of shapes that sit on different planes, creating literal depth, while the composition itself creates a perceived depth. It is this intersection of the literal and perceived that informs the work; where the absence of material reveals form and the casting of shadow create line.
Recently, Liu has been further exploring the collision between imaginary space and real space: shadows that cast shadow / extruding shapes that recede like a sunken relief / sliced shapes formed by cut material. The artist adds “Underlying every piece is the method and medium of hand-cut paper. There is a calm in this process, with its forced tedium + slow/heavy time consumption, that allows me to live in and about the work. Every shape and color, every corner and edge, I was there for. There is no escaping it and, ultimately, there are no shortcuts.”
Honored to be included in the Spring 2020 issue of JUXTAPOZ magazine (issue no. 213) in recognition of our 15 year anniversary.
Our curator and co-owner Andrew Hosner was interviewed by JUXTAPOZ editor Evan Pricco for a 3-page feature discussing our vision, the LA scene and plans for the future.
Big thanks to Evan and the entire JUXTAPOZ family for always supporting us and being down to collaborate on various projects together over the years. Looking forward to many more years working together.
“Fifteen years in the art works is like an eternity. Movements, scenes, the Next Big Thing, they come and go, not so much like pop sensations in the larger cultural world, but propelled by the unparalleled fluctuating beast that is the art market. That Thinkspace Projects has fostered something rare in the art world since 2005, supporting artists through traditional exhibitions, sales, fairs, museum shows and festivals, as well as fully participating in the culture, is pretty exceptional. They have engaged with street art, New Contemporary and Pop Surrealism, and not idly standing by, waiting for the culture to come to them.” – JUXTAPOZ
