    This is the third in a series of public forums investigating the exhibitions Project X produced in the 90s at 18th Street Arts Center, with a focus on the conditions facing Los Angeles artists at that time, and the way they shaped artist-run organizations, alternative exhibitions and publications. What can the nineties tell us about now?

    Project X originated as a roving organization. A team of artists curating exhibitions in the wake of the art market boom of the nineties, they strove to fill the absence of conceptual art criticism in Los Angeles. Project X’s curatorial projects illustrate the crucial role of the artist’s voice in shaping and sustaining the Los Angeles art community.

    The Project X Forums are organized by Shana Lutker and Kellie Lanham.
