Clockshop is a multifaceted arts organization that works at the intersection of cultural production, politics, and urban space. We produce projects by contemporary visual and performing artists and program events, screenings, and conversations. We are especially interested in bringing people together to share in the strange particularities of our hometown, Los Angeles, and in the global creative practices and politics that influence us.

Due to limited bandwidth, Clockshop does not accept unsolicited portfolios or proposals.

Clockshop is located in a former porcelain mold factory in Frogtown, adjacent to the LA River:

Clockshop shares its space with elysian, a bar and restaurant run by David Thorne and his dedicated staff. Clockshop and elysian are also occasional collaborators.

Many Clockshop events happen at the Bowtie (2800 Casitas Ave. 90039). More information about the Bowtie Project is here.

Clockshop has also executed projects on LA city streets, and at various partner institutions, such as California Institute of the Arts (CalArts), [ALOUD] at the Los Angeles Public Library, the Huntington, and the Armory Center for the Arts.
