In this week's art feature, Andrew Berardini takes a look at L.A.'s new wave of alternative, artist-run spaces, especially Night Gallery and the Museum of Public Fiction.

Night Gallery distinguishes itself by its hours -- 10 p.m. to 2 a.m., Tuesday through Thursday -- which are inconvenient to some, but serve to turn the place into an ongoing party. Public Fiction is built around a quarterly journal, whose content is inspired by what happens in the space.

But how long will or can these places survive? Berardini writes:

They are by their very experimental nature meant to effervesce briefly and disappear, leaving behind only a legend.
