Nothing Special is the name of an artist-run series of exhibitions in an 11 by 11 foot room on the second floor of an art studio in the West Adams neighborhood of Los Angeles.
Exhibitions revolve around simple themes that make a virtue of the gallery’s limitations, featuring projects that either expand upon or exist in parallel to the participants’ usual artistic practice.
Our mission is to promote the work of artists and to spark creative dialogues between members of Los Angeles’s art community. Each Nothing Special show will be numbered in sequence for the duration of the series, and will include a limited edition 'zine intended to broaden the scope and reach of the conversation.
We believe that artistic merit should not be determined by commercial viability. Nothing Special works outside the mainstream gallery system in Los Angeles and encourages accessibility via an engaged social media presence.
