Welcome to Curbed's first-ever Micro Week, five days' worth of stories, photos, and minuscule floorplans that celebrate the grand tradition of small-space living. We'll tour small homes, explore the city's smallest neighborhood, and so much more!
Los Angeles has The Broad art museum basically ready to open on Bunker Hill, a 100,000-square-foot gallery heading to the Arts District, and a multi-building museum focusing on Downtown artists slated for the Historic Core's Old Bank District, plus a potential new LACMA building that could be 400,000 square feet. But for every big gallery or art space in LA, there are dozens of smaller ones working within their much smaller means—operating out of old jewelry store fronts or emptied convenience stores or abandoned pedestrian underpasses—to show work by artists in a setting that allows for an intimacy with the art that amounts to more than just physical proximity. We've picked out some of the smallest art galleries and DIY spaces in town, but this list is by no means exhaustive—somewhere, there's a month-long exhibition in a walk-in closet that we're missing.
