Gas is a mobile, autonomous, experimental and networked platform for contemporary art. Located in a truck gallery parked around Los Angeles and online, Gas collaborates closely with artists to create experiences that foster community and connection while imagining alternative forms of cultural and critical production. The space’s inherently itinerant format reflects the fluidity of twenty-first century culture and art practice, while also allowing considerable independence and creative freedom in terms of concept, site, format, audience, and engagement. Gas offers an opportunity to rethink why, where and how we view art, whether the encounter happens while surfing the web or driving around Los Angeles, a city defined by its sprawl and car culture.
Location and Hours:
Saturdays, Noon-5pm, January 26-April 14, 2019
1989 Blake Ave
Los Angeles, CA 90039
Gas will park at Tin Flats every Saturday in Spring 2019, unless a pop-up is scheduled elsewhere. We would like to give special thanks to Tin Flats for hosting us. Founded in 2017 by Stephen Neidich, Tin Flats is an artist-run space founded on a desire to foster artistic practice, collaboration, dialogue, exhibition, and community.
Held within unique former produce stalls, SPRING/BREAK Art Show LA will feature 40+ curated exhibitions of local emerging and established artists, non-profit organizations, independent curators, artist collectives and galleries.

Fluid in definition, bonded by an intention to operate in other places outside the traditional art gallery systems, Other Places art fair (OPaf) features participants presenting site-specific booths encapsulating their projects and programming. Representing the growing movement of hard to define art project spaces, OPaf provides a custom art fair structure designed specifically for these unconventional projects.
