Slow Culture is an independent art gallery + retail project space located in the historic Northeast Los Angeles neighborhood of Highland Park. We have rebuilt the bones of what was once THIS Gallery, into a multi- purpose creative space. There is an art gallery with a carefully-constructed floor plan to allow for flexible programming options such as: artist exhibitions/installations, lectures, workshops, creative meet-ups and retail pop-ups. We have also extended the retail aspect of the space to offer a carefully curated selection of books, zines, art prints, and various curios.
