David Kordansky Gallery is one of the most dynamic venues for contemporary art in Los Angeles, and is internationally regarded as a leading gallery of its generation.
Established in 2003 as part of a burgeoning artistic community in the city’s Chinatown, the gallery began as a cutting-edge incubator for emerging talent. It quickly grew into a widely respected voice in the international conversation surrounding new and recent art, and moved to its second home, in Culver City, in 2008.
David Kordansky Gallery currently operates a 20,000 square foot facility in Mid-City Los Angeles. Opened in September 2014, this location encompasses two adjacent and equally sized gallery spaces, allowing for maximum flexibility in the mounting of solo, group, and historical exhibitions.
In September 2020, the gallery completed a 12,800-square-foot expansion of its premises, renovating three structures and creating a central landscaped courtyard between them. This 2,300 square feet of flexible exterior space allows for a diversity of programming, including performance, film, and outdoor sculpture. Among the indoor spaces is a 2,000-square-foot exhibition space that, taken together with the original gallery, makes it possible to mount three separate shows simultaneously.
The gallery’s artists have been the subjects of solo exhibitions in acclaimed museums worldwide and regularly appear in landmark biennials and thematic group shows. They work in all media and styles, defined as a group by their heterogeneity and individuality rather than their allegiance to any single aesthetic position. The exhibition program is dedicated to presenting artists’ work with passion and intellectual rigor, and to bringing the utmost care and precision to the showcasing of their visions.
As the program has evolved, the gallery has broadened its scope, collaborating with artists at all stages of their careers so that various historical lineages can enter into dialogue with one another. What has not changed, however, is the desire to foster greater understanding of Los Angeles’ development as an important city for art since World War II. David Kordansky Gallery sees itself as an institution firmly rooted in its hometown and in California, even as it embraces cultural activity in the 21st century as a fully global phenomenon. As such, it also treats its participation in the major international art fairs as serious exhibition opportunities, often planning solo presentations and other special programming.
The gallery has long valued the role that publications play in the diffusion of ideas and as snapshots of moments in time. With each year it expands its efforts in this area, publishing an ever-growing range of exhibition catalogues and limited edition artist’s books.
