Los Angeles's David Kordansky Gallery will move this September from its Culver City location to a space on South La Brea. Located at the intersection of South La Brea and Edgewood Place, the new site is in the neighborhood known as Mid-City.
Architect Kulapat Yantrasast and his L.A.-based firm, wHY Architecture, will design the 20,000-square-foot facility, which triples the gallery's footprint. The design unites two pre-existing buildings, previously the site of a filmmaking studio, a martial arts training center, an auto dealership and a food market. wHY also designed Perry Rubenstein's L.A. gallery and the Venice Beach branch of bygone New York gallery L&M Arts.
Kordansky opened his gallery in Chinatown in 2003 and moved to Culver City in 2008. He represents artists including Matthew Brannon, Valentin Carron, Heather Cook, Sam Gilliam, Rashid Johnson, Elad Lassry and Jonas Wood. An exhibition of L.A.-based artist Mary Weatherford opens May 19 and will be the final show at Kordansky's current location, at 3143 S. La Cienega Blvd. Weatherford's show, "Los Angeles," will run through May 31.
