The new 4,500 square foot layout will feature a private showroom and separate project space, doubling the size of Gavlak’s former Hollywood gallery. In the 2020 season, Gavlak Los Angeles will exhibit solo presentations of new work by artists Alex Anderson, Gisela Colon, and Enoc Perez, among others. Dedicated to intimate, focused, and historic exhibitions of under-recognized artists, the project space in the new gallery will further highlight small surveys from minimalism, to Andy Warhol works on paper, and old master drawings. The new building is also home to Susanne Vielmetter and Nicodim Gallery, and blocks from Night Gallery, François Ghebaly, and Wilding Cran Gallery in the burgeoning downtown gallery district.
Since opening in 2005, Gavlak has been dedicated to promoting the diverse cultural landscape of today while upholding their commitment to providing a platform for underrepresented artists to be recognized by the international art community. In keeping with their mission to advance marginalized women and LGBTQ artists, Gavlak continues to devote their energy, resources, and love to these artists in order to bring critical attention to their program.
