We would like to invite you to General Projects: A Show for You a summer show at Insert Blanc Press HQ / Chris Niemi Studio.
The show will consist of artists on Insert Blanc Press alongside various other artists we've recently met, and some who are relatively new to Los Angeles. Work in the show will consist of sculpture, photography, painting, video, performance and etc... Besides the opening we have scheduled dates for events to make room for time based work such as readings, lectures, performances, screenings and etc with Friday August 9th focused slightly more on video screenings.
We're in Downtown LA in a warehouse and have a fair amount of open wall and floor space. We live here and are excited to have our living area also function as a gallery and performance space! You may see a list of artists below and we will be adding surprise performances to the list.
We would love you to join us for General Projects: A Show for You
