ON THE GROUND FLOOR (OTGF) was an alternative art space hosting local, national, and international group exhibitions in South Los Angeles. Located on the ground floor of a two-story residence in the historic neighborhood of View Park, OTGF showed nearly seventy-five global emerging artists from 2014 to 2016. Our exhibitions, talks, readings, and workshops sought to foster meaningful conversations about contemporary art, create organic connections for artists, and preserve space for curatorial experimentation and exploration. 

Malika Ali Harding served as co-founder & curator.
