Ooga Booga started in 2004 as a tiny shop in Chinatown Los Angeles specializing in independent art, books, music, and clothing.
Over the past decade-and-half we have organized events, performances, film screenings, and readings at this space and in satellite projects elsewhere such as Swiss Institute NY, Kadist Foundation SF, and Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA) Philadelphia. From January 2013 to May 2018 we had a second location (Ooga Booga #2) at 356 S Mission Road, where we co-organized free weekly programming such as artist projects, talks, book events, films, workshops, music, food, and performances.
We occasionally publish books, zines, records, tapes, and art editions. In 2008, we created a free online database of art book printers, in response to frequent requests from our customers for advice on book publishing and art printing.
