RAID Projects is an exhibition and curatorial organization that is dedicated to supporting and facilitating innovative cultural production in Los Angeles. Originally founded in 1998 by artist and curator Max Presneill in Santa Ana, CA, proprietorship of RAID was handed over to artist Jason Ramos in 2010.
We curate and host outside curatorial exhibitions at our Los Angeles space. We also curate exhibitions for other galleries, project spaces, museums and alternative venues in the United States and globally. Exhibitions have come to Raid Projects from Japan, U.K., Australia and Mexico and we have sent exhibitions to Tokyo, Amsterdam, Sydney, New York, Chicago, London, Berlin, Mexico City and Scottsdale.
RAID Projects sustains a year-round artist in residence program, which functions as an opportunity for residents to push their activities to new heights. The residency program is largely focused on providing international artists with living accommodation, studio space and access to the LA art world. We also accept applications from US-based artists whose projects will benefit from time spent in LA.
