IAM8BIT ART GALLERY
CREATIVE/ART DIRECTION, CURATION
Even though iam8bit is a now a boutique marketing agency, it started life as a pop-culture art show in Los Angeles. When moving to LA to take a partnership role in the company, we had decided to lease a huge warehouse in Echo Park to turn into an office and more importantly, a permanent gallery space. Literally from the ground up, we transformed the space into a 6,000+ square foot showcase for art. Kicking off with the hugely successful Super iam8bit show, the space now seven years later still plays host to all things art.
Within the walls of the gallery, we not only did fine art exhibitions like the White Canvas Project but also sponsored group art shows inspired by popular culture brands such as Namco, Street Fighter, and many more.
