Bermudez Projects’ mission is to present dynamic works by the next generation of contemporary American and international artists.
Since 2003, Julian Bermudez has curated exhibits and produced installations and web-based projects for museums and galleries. In 2008, he began producing “pop-up” art exhibits in found spaces creating unique experiences for all the participants. In 2011, he launched Bermudez Projects, a multi-platform arts program dedicated to increasing public access to the visual arts through exhibits, publications, events, video and sound, and social media. Since then, Bermudez Projects has partnered with Pacific Asia Museum, the Cartoon Art Museum, LAUNCH LA, Design Within Reach, Southern California Public Radio, AltaMed Health Services, and the Museum of Latin American Art, and – in 2011 – was one of the participating galleries in The Getty Foundation’s region-wide initiative Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. 1945-1980.
In March 2017, Bermudez Projects opened its second exhibit space in the Northeast Los Angeles neighborhood of Cypress Park. Nestled in the foothills of Mt. Washington, its purpose is to highlight and present the talent that has “graduated” from the emerging-artist category at its DTLA space into the mid-career artist level of achievement.
