The name “Art Is Shit” is a humorous slant on art which views artwork purely as functionless objects when stripped of all artistic significants and removed from its context.
Art Is Shit Editions is a Los Angeles, CA based art publishing company that works with emerging contemporary artist’s whose work often challenges the boundaries of what is publicly perceived and deemed acceptable as “art”. The editions we produce often use found objects, appropriation, or nontraditional materials, thus creating provocative, sometimes outlandish, yet conceptually challenging ideas and meanings.
AIS Editions curates several “pop-up” exhibitions and events utilizing vacant properties or public spaces, as well as our gallery location near downtown Los Angeles.
AIS Editions was co-founded in Providence, RI in 2009 by two artists - Ryan McIntosh and Danielle Lange.
