Organization Description and Mission
the wulf. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit arts organization dedicated to the presentation of experimental arts. Our facilities are located in a beautiful loft in downtown Los Angeles, where we hold an ongoing series of free events open to the public. The primary objectives and purposes of the wulf. are to 1) curate free public performances of experimental music, film, dance and performance art; 2) provide sponsorship, direction and support to local composers and performers of experimental arts; 3) invite guests from around the world to have a forum to present their music and engage with local artists; 4) maintain facilities for the aforementioned objectives and house an archive of documented experimental works such as musical scores, recordings, printed retrospectives of various artists, and theoretical texts.
Since our inception in August 2008, the wulf. has presented over 250 concerts free to the public featuring well over 250 composers, performers and artists. This has resulted in the wulf. being recognized as a hub for a burgeoning experimental arts scene populated by many young as well as more well-known artists who now have an appropriate forum dedicated to the support of the radical.
