With the widespread phenomenon of the home studio; whether out of preference or necessity, Workspace Only/No Overnights presents recent works by artists currently employing aspects of the found object, accessible materials, and available/low tech applications within their practice towards generating art.

This communion with the available has led to the term DIY becoming nearly ubiquitous with a majority of arts practice and contemporary developments in dematerialization and notions of the post-studio. Utilizing expanded and accessible methods of distribution/receiving, conception, and autodidacticism via the internet the artist is continually working and preparing stages of work/development of said work in a variety of media. This advancement, paired against  complications in economics and the general cost of living leading more artists to work out of their living spaces/live in their work spaces and/or utilizing found objects to compete with basic standards of living and expected artistic production. While steadily increasing, these complications have always existed and through these complications the usage of alternative/communal spaces has been crucial in literally getting these works outside of the house.

Utilizing the communal space of art in the park, a site similar to a living space in appearance, Workspace Only/No Overnights actively demonstrates the role of art and community and the varying practices in the local communities of Los Angeles.
