BEST PRACTICE is a not-for-profit exhibition space located in the Barrio Logan neighborhood of San Diego, CA for projects from regional, national, and international artists and curators.
For its first two years, BEST PRACTICE existed at two locations in San Diego: within an institutional glass-enclosed bulletin board housed within the Department of Art, Architecture + Art History at the University of San Diego, and on a Sony Trinitron PVM20L5 video monitor which screened video works installed at Helmuth Projects.
BEST PRACTICE was founded by Joe Yorty and Allie Mundt in 2016.
