Asa Mendelsohn makes sensitive essayistic films that portray particular cultural moments in particular communities, often immersing himself and embracing his own subjectivity. His recently completed film, Pasture, 2022, revisits the David and Goliath story of a Southern California community resisting the construction of a military training facility.

The Billboard Exhibition

TBC produces an annual, month-long exhibition on the streets of Los Angeles. For over 7 years, we have carefully curated and hung work on a massive scale throughout the city, with our billboards being viewed more than 1.2 million times. Celebrating emerging and mid-career artists from around the globe, the show is open to submissions across all disciplines.

Los Angeles Public Art Mapping Project

LA:PAMP is a smartphone and desktop map and archiving project. Built to help people find all things public art, murals, and graffiti in our community. It includes a section of historical and culturally important murals curated by @public_archivist and the Civic Art Baseline Inventory. There are also LA area galleries and museums. LA:PAMP is a crowd-sourced project relying on volunteers, artists, and galleries to track and tag work throughout the Los Angeles area.  The Billboard Creative maintains and manages the project, but at its core, it is a project created by the artists of our city and beyond. Their drive is to give our city its unique voice and visual aesthetic that can only be Los Angeles.

TBC|Interview

A digital look at today’s most interesting voices in art, from all sides of the creative spectrum. TBC Interview will be a growing resource for in-depth conversations on the issues that artists are dealing with and thinking about right now. We hope it serves as a point of discovery, as well as a place to delve deeper into the stories that drive each artist’s creative process.
