Thinkspace Celebrates 10 Years with “La Familia” ~ Opens This Saturday Night

5:36 PM PST on January 8, 2015


Thinkspace has occupied an important place in the Los Angeles art world, and this weekend they celebrate 10 years in business. What we love most about Thinkspace is that they seem to be able to provide the essential context that artists need to properly share their vision with the public. Thinkspace doesn't just curate great art, they allow artists to create unique shows and installations that change people's perceptions.

L.A. Taco focuses a lot on street art, graffiti, and vandalism and lots of people have had the idea to take that style of art and put it in a gallery. Far fewer have been able to actually make it work, and Thinkspace is one of the leaders. More than that, they passionately care about the artists and the work they display, and everything from the presentation to the way they speak and write about their exhibits reflects that passion and love.

For the 10 year anniversary, the gallery presents La Familia, a group exhibition featuring over 120 small works, and huge talent, by the gallery’s permanent roster and extended family. Co-presented with Trekell, each artist will produce a 10” x 10” work on panel to commemorate the gallery’s fortuitous milestone, and to commend the creativity of all those who have built the foundations for its future. This special exhibition is dedicated to the growing strength of our numbers and, most importantly, to our artists.
