Lateral ArtSpace is an artist-run exhibition and project space located at the Paintbrush Factory in Cluj-Napoca, Romania.

It is dedicated to local, national and international emerging artists. Lateral was founded in April 2012 and is coordinated by three Romanian artists: Dragoș Bădiță, Cristina Curcan and Lucian Indrei. The project started as a response to the lack of exhibition possibilities for emerging artists. Lateral ArtSpace is open to various projects and collaborations, workshops and interdisciplinary research.
