Hooper Projects is a unique artist-in-residence program founded in 2014 by a group of like-minded art enthusiasts. Located in a 14,000 square foot former metal shaping factory that has been refurbished into a communal space and individual studios, it provides a socially active space for younger artists from around the world to collaborate, produce, and exhibit their work. The program allows artists to begin a dialogue with one another and to engage with the cultural hub that is downtown Los Angeles.
