But nowhere could be hotter than a sardine-tin room in L.A.'s Virgil Village, where the AC does nothing and the crowd has no choice but to stand nose-to-canvas with 50 photographs, drawings, paintings, and digital artworks by a new generation of Californian creatives.
Sunday gallery, a 20-foot-wide room reached from a back garden staircase, (through somebody's living room) is barely big enough to contain the 47 exhibitors whose group show launched on 30 July.
So when a crush of guests turn up, too, the thermometer shatters.
This is what happens when you invite four-dozen artists making shimmering square-shaped imagery perfect for Instagram: their followers -- running into the thousands, tens-of-thousands, and hundred-thousands -- arrive in force, IRL.
"We wanted to have a big group show that included all the artists I was discovering on Instagram [and] a lot of artists I knew that were all making a lot of amazing work," says Rajkovic, who co-founded the gallery in 2014.
"Instagram has been really important," she adds. "I learned about whole new worlds."
Flick through the gallery at the top to see 13 artists -- all young, female, and lighting up Instagram -- you should be adding to your daily scroll.
