Founded in Los Angeles in 2005, and located in the Culver City art district since 2009,
Thinkspace was established with a commitment to the promotion and dissemination of
young and emerging art. The gallery is a catalytic conduit for the emerging art scene,
and is dedicated to the exposure of its tenets and its artists. This movement, straddled
between popular culture, graphic art, design and street art, is subject to steadily
increasing global expansion, and is in need of institutional advocates.
Thinkspace is positioned to create opportunities and a visible platform for its recognition
and proliferation. The movement is young, but significant, and Thinkspace's aim is to
establish both a curatorial forum and a collector base for its output. As an institution,
Thinkspace is committed to vision, risk, and the exceptional talents that wield it. From
the streets, to the gallery, from the "margins", to the white cube, Thinkspace is reenvisioning
what it means to be "institutional". As a haven for talent, and a venue
founded in passion, conviction, and community, the gallery's mandate is rooted in
projections for its future longevity. We intend to be a vehicle for the talents we vet for
year's to come, and are passionate advocates for their vision and their dreams.
