Los Angeles gallery Regen Projects has expanded its footprint, unveiling a new Hollywood location on Saturday. The inaugural show includes over thirty of the gallery's artists including Doug Aitken and Lawrence Weiner.
Hollywood is relatively uncharted territory for the Los Angeles art world, with the majority of galleries concentrated in West LA and Culver City. Regen Projects joins Perry Rubenstein, which arrived in the area in June.
The Palazzo Grassi-François Pinault Foundation's "Voices of Images" will be the foundation's first exhibition dedicated to the moving image. Curated by Caroline Bourgeois, who manages the foundation's collection, the show (Aug. 29, 2012–Jan. 13, 2013) encompasses 30 works of film, video and installation, by 25 artists. The exhibition's opening will coincide with the start of the 69th Venice International Film Festival.
Jeffrey Weiss has been promoted to senior curator at the Guggenheim Museum, New York. As senior curator, Weiss will "take on a greater role as part of the museum's core curatorial team," says Guggenheim director Richard Armstrong, while continuing to spearhead the Panza Collection.
Weiss has worked at the Guggenheim since 2010 as curator of the Panza Collection Conservation Initiative, a long-term project funded by the Andrew Mellon Foundation and dedicated to preservation and re-fabrication of works of minimalist, post-minimalist and conceptual art.

Blueprints for the building include a 240-plus-seat performance space, outdoor plazas, a sculpture garden, classrooms, a café and administrative offices.
