The Gabba Gallery presents Curate This, the first annual exhibition highlighting the work of contemporary Los Angeles Artist/Curators.   This almost 2000 sq. ft. gallery sets off your curiosity as you see the visions and interpreted inner workings of these curators in their own practice. A fresh feeling comes forward in this exhibition, by turning the tables and bringing them together in one place, the viewer is brought into an explosion of ideas, loosely held together by a strong vision for Los Angeles and its place in the world of art.  The showing embraces several artists to create a thoughtful, inspired feel as you embark into the imaginations of artists such as Nathan Cartwright of The Hive Gallery, Stephen Zeigler of Indian Alleyand Mat Gleason of  Coagula Curatorial.


“We’re not sure when it came to us, how cool it would be to turn the tables on LA’s contemporary Artist/Curators, it just took off… We are very excited to have all of these remarkable talents under one roof for the first annual CURATE THIS.  The art is stunning. -Jason Ostro, Curator
