What we're about

We want to experiment with the emphasis on an artist-as-curator approach to organizing and designing exhibitions and events.

Key interests:
- experiments in exhibition making, architecture, art, sound and performance

- collaborative exploration of various artistic practices

- hands-on approach

- interest in tech related practices: both analogue and digital (+ we love modular synths!)

- interest in DIY objects

- interdisciplinary nature of the events

- meetings, discussions, workshops and community events

Huge bonus: we have a space to accommodate all these unreasonable endeavours (Santa Monica Airport_ Studio Space)
So if you have ideas you would like bring to reality, let's do it together.
