Machine Project was a Los Angeles based not-for-profit arts organization and community event space.


Founded by Mark Allen, Machine Project launched in 2003 with its inaugural show, ‘Tom Jennings - Story Teller,’ an installation produced by Tom Jennings, which was displayed from December 6, 2003 until January 24, 2004.[1] In the museums first year, it displayed six different exhibits.

Machine Project later moved toward larger collaborations, holding residences with major art museums, including a one-day takeover of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) on November 15, 2008 and a several month residency at the Hammer Museum in 2010.[2] Machine Project announced it would close in January 2018.[3]
