Short House


Short House grew out of a desire to connect artists, create opportunities to exhibit, host performances, and cultivate meaningful conversations. Short House is a curatorial project started by artist Michelle Chong. Founded in 2007, Short House began in a small 3-bedroom house in the Los Angeles neighborhood, Mar Vista on Short Avenue. Since then, Short House moved to Berlin for a few engagements, popped up in Copenhagen, London, Joshua Tree, and Baltimore. This year, Short House will celebrate its 10-year anniversary back in Mar Vista, Los Angeles.
