GYST DO IT! ESXLA and TSA NY
Guests are artists Jason Ramos and Rachael Gorchov. Jason and Rachael talk about having a diversified artistic practice that includes being deeply committed to and involved in artist-run initiatives.
Jason founded (along with artists Michelle Carla Handel and Molly Shea) and directs Eastside International (ESXLA), an artist-run contemporary art space and international artist residency based in downtown Los Angeles. ESXLA hosts artists to live, work, and immerse themselves in the local art community. ESXLA’s exhibition program features local, national, and international emerging and established artists in a non-commercial alternative venue.
Rachael Gorshov was an artist in residence at ESXLA in 2014. She is a member of Tiger Strikes Asteroid (TSA) in New York. TSA is a network of artist-run spaces with locations in Philadelphia, New York, and Los Angeles. Each space is independently operated and presents a program of emerging and mid-career artists. The goal is to collectively bring people together, expand connections and build community through artist-initiated projects.
