Thank you to our friends at Beautiful Bizarre for featuring Jack Shure’s ‘Soul Sanitizer‘ and Reen Barrera’s ‘Cluster Fudge‘ on their site this past week ahead of the opening reception. Both exhibitions are on view now through June 26th.
Close your eyes. Take a deep breath and let your imagination drift into the creative composition of two distinct artists and their visual imaginings. This weekend, Thinkspace Projects proudly celebrates the opening of Jack Shure, Soul Sanitizer and Reen Barrera, Cluster Fudge. Immerse yourself in these spectacular new bodies of work and let it pique all your artistic senses.
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.
Artist Kathy Ager, whose exhibition “Golden Age” is currently on view at Thinkspace Projects, was recently interviewed by Beautiful Bizarre about her latest body of work. Visit Beautiful Bizarre for the full interview.
“I love how much of a story can be told by the combination of objects. I also find peace in the strong stillness of still lives. I like to include objects and brands that are familiar to the viewer, but that have a secret significance to me personally. ” – Kathy Ager in Beautiful Bizarre

Nguyen’s work depicts surreal dreamscapes that are ethereal in nature with illustrative execution. Tran Nguyen’s currently showing a new piece in Flourish at the Mesa Contemporary Arts Museum and will be exhibiting in Swankin September.
