Coming up this September at London’s StolenSpace Gallery will be “LAX/LHR”. For the ninth iteration of Thinkspace’s traveling group exhibitions, we have teamed up with D*Face and his crew to present the largest survey of the New Contemporary Art Movement to ever take place in the United Kingdom.
This special exhibition will feature over 130 local and international artists co-curated by Los Angeles-based gallery Thinkspace and London-based gallery StolenSpace. The massive group exhibition serves as a survey of the burgeoning New Contemporary Art Movement for art lovers in the United Kingdom, handpicked by two of the scene’s most prolific galleries.
“With roots firmly planted in illustration, pop culture, comics, street art and graffiti, put quite simply the New Contemporary Art Movement is art for the people,” Thinkspace co-founder Andrew Hosner said.

About StolenSpace Gallery:
StolenSpace Gallery exhibits a genre of work that has been variously labeled as ‘Underground Art’, ‘Street Art’ or ‘Urban Art’. None of these terms satisfactorily represent our artists’ work and so we prefer not to pigeonhole it. Some of our artists have a background in graffiti and street art, but not exclusively – all however, are influenced by society’s prevailing subculture where there are few rules and anything is possible. StolenSpace lets in the life-giving vitality of this environment that has long been overlooked by galleries and museums.
About Thinkspace Gallery:
Founded in Los Angeles in 2005, and located in the Culver City art district since 2009, Thinkspace was established with a commitment to the promotion and dissemination of young and emerging art. The gallery is a catalytic conduit for the emerging art scene, and is dedicated to the exposure of its tenets and its artists. This movement, straddled between popular culture, graphic art, design, and street art, is subject to steadily increasing global expansion, and is in need of institutional advocates. Thinkspace is positioned to create opportunities and a visible platform for its recognition and proliferation. The movement is young, but significant, and Thinkspace’s aim is to establish both a curatorial forum and a collector base for its output. As an institution, Thinkspace is committed to vision, risk, and the exceptional talents that wield it. From the streets, to the gallery, from the “margins”, to the white cube, Thinkspace is re-envisioning what it means to be “institutional”. As a haven for talent, and a venue founded in passion, conviction, and community, the gallery’s mandate is rooted in projections for its future longevity. We intend to be a vehicle for the talents we vet for year’s to come, and are passionate advocates for their vision and their dreams.
