The Mistake Room is LA's only independent non-profit cultural institution solely devoted to an international program of contemporary art and thought. Through ambitious and thought-provoking exhibitions, artist projects, public programs, and publications, The Mistake Room champions some of the most promising artists and cultural producers around the globe while also commissioning new work by established figures who have never before exhibited in our city. Led by the ideas of artists and informed by the social, political, and cultural circumstances that shape our now, The Mistake Room brings to local audiences a dynamic and accessible program that is both intellectually rigorous and geniunely diverse.

In working with the artists and creative makers of our time, remembering those that came before them, and championing those who will come after, The Mistake Room aims to redefine the role and function of the arts institution in public life — charging it with the responsibility of addressing charged and pressing questions alongside the visionaries whose lives and labors help us believe in the promise of a world we've yet to know.

As we prepare for our second year of ambitious programming, we ask that you consider making an end of the year gift to The Mistake Room. Supporting The Mistake Room through our membership programs connects you to peoples, places and histories that exist well beyond the confines of our city and helps us bring to Los Angeles an international platform for the encounter of art and ideas.

The Mistake Room's Mistake and Big Mistake Patron Groups represent an intimate group of international visionaries whose substantial support helps realize our ambitious collaborations with artists. Patrons of these groups enjoy exclusive benefits and have intimate access to the artists, thinkers, and curators who are shaping the future of contemporary art on an international scale. In addition to a content-driven program of activities and events, Patrons also have the opportunity to partake in curator-led international trips to burgeoning art centers. In addition, Patrons receive unique artist multiples by leading international artists. These Patron Groups are limited to forty (40) patrons and individuals may choose to renew their participation yearly.
