Mondrian LA is now hosting a specially curated pop-up gallery in collaboration with Artspace.com in the hotel’s custom-designed retail space. The recently-launched exhibit is open until June 15th, 2011 and will offer visitors a selection of carefully chosen contemporary artwork from leading artists at price points between $250 and $4,500.
The gallery features a 16-piece collection of limited edition works compiled exclusively for the hotel. Highlighted pieces include compelling, unstaged Polaroid photographs from Jeremy Kost that expose the reality of celebrities and fashion and art elite with uncompromising immediacy. Other works of note come from Nick Cave, who turns sundry materials, such as cast-off clothing, flea market discoveries, and dyed human hair, into transformative “soundsuits” that double as sumptuous sculptures. Additional artists in the collection include Daniel Rich, Ross Bleckner, Rebecca Graham, Alexis Rockman, Rebekka Guðleifsdóttir, Doug Geraghty, Clifford Ross, Kim Keever and David Levinthal.
The mission of Artspace is to change the way the world experiences art by helping collectors and aspiring collectors discover, learn about and collect art and to support artists and cultural institutions that form the very foundation of creative culture across the globe. By removing the barriers that prevent people from experiencing, collecting and living with great art, Artspace supports artists and their practices by making their work more accessible to a broad audience and introducing their works to the next generation of collectors.
