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

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.”
