Feb 12–Dec 31, 2019
Moving from a white cube in Hollywood to an exhibition space within Tin Flats, a studio for working artists in Los Angeles, was a transition.
This extended and fluctuating first installation included artists Alika Cooper, Pippa Garner, Martin Kersels, Jason Kraus, Brian O'Connell, Tony Oursler, Caitlin Lonegan, Erlea Maneros Zabala, Kori Newkirk & Eric Wesley and was designed to allow time for research and development around the concept of the gallery.
Instead of individual exhibitions, and their adjoining openings, interactions were created by focusing on public talks, book launches, individual meetings, lunches with colleagues, public screenings, and collaborations; such as the almost weekly "Narrow Bar", operated during the summer of 2019 with Stephen Neidich and Andrew Bernardini. During this time, the exhibition space played host to performances by Page Person and Paul Gellman as well as the Tin Flats Flea, a sprawling marketplace including stands by Kingsboro Press, Poetic Research Bureau, O Town House/Monika Baer, Semiotexte, 123 Astronaut, KCHUNG radio, East of Borneo, and Paradise Garage.
