    About the Project X Forums
    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.

    Project X will host forums once a month through 2015.

    Thanks to 18th Street Arts Center! The Curator in Residence program at 18th Street Arts Center is generously supported by the the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts.

    Thank you to LACA for hosting the Project X Forums Archive.
