Los Angeles


The concept of Arvia was born out of necessity to preserve tangible context in viewing contemporary art and to offer space to fellow artists to work, think and live.

Arvia is a site of creative production, co-run by Andrew Cortes and Anne Marie Taylor. Growing up, Andrew watched his grandfather work and build in the shed sat the back of the property where his studio is now. The outdoor communal space functions as a resource for friends and artists to work on individual projects, and has organically developed to include exhibitions of a site-specific nature, having been either conceived or built onsite or made specifically for the space.

The main house has been open as an intimate residency for artists, architects and photographers since spring 2016.
