BEST PRACTICE is a not-for-profit exhibition project for works from regional, national, and international artists and curators.
BEST PRACTICE exists at two locations in San Diego: as an institutional glass-enclosed bulletin board currently housed within the Department of Art, Architecture + Art History at the University of San Diego, and as a Sony Trinitron PVM20L5 video monitor which screens video works installed and on view at Helmuth Projects.
BEST PRACTICE is mainly organized and operated during its directors' state-mandated rest breaks and meal periods and was founded by Joe Yorty and Allie Mundt in 2016.
