Machine Project

How to categorize this space? Installations have included a magical woodland and a picturesque shipwreck; activities range from a group weeping-and-laughter ceremony to a clothing-optional film screening to a gourmet ham bar—and that’s all in a single event! Machine Project provides support for its artist collaborators to throw all manner of happenings (stay informed via its website). Events happen around twice a week, usually in the evenings.

One of those weird and wonderful oddities that makes living in LA such a great experience; the Machine Project is a space that frequently changes up not just its decor, but its physical makeup, and hosts events and art exhibitions fitting within that theme.  A convenience store in the front but a cave in the back?  Check.  "Sports" night with the theatre filled with screens all playing a weird variant on the theme, complete with keg beer?  Check.  Eerie domestic scenes and alien abductions?  Sure.  Get on their mailing list to find out what the space's most recent transformation holds.
