David Kordansky Gallery is one of the most dynamic venues for contemporary art, and is internationally regarded as a leading gallery of its generation.

Established in 2003 as part of a burgeoning artistic community in Los Angeles’s Chinatown neighborhood, the gallery began as a cutting-edge incubator for emerging talent. It quickly grew into a widely respected voice in the international conversation surrounding new and recent art, and moved to its second home, in Culver City, in 2008.

David Kordansky Gallery currently operates a 20,000-square-foot facility in Mid-City Los Angeles and a 5,000-square-foot space in New York. Our Los Angeles campus encompasses three exhibition spaces across two buildings with a landscaped courtyard between them, allowing for three separate shows to be mounted simultaneously and for diversity in programming, including performance, film, and outdoor sculpture. Our gallery space in the Chelsea neighborhood of New York welcomes visitors with an engaging experience while foregrounding the artwork on view.

The gallery’s artists have been the subjects of solo exhibitions in acclaimed museums worldwide and regularly appear in landmark biennials and thematic group shows. They work in all media and styles, defined as a group by their heterogeneity and individuality rather than their allegiance to any single aesthetic position. The exhibition program is dedicated to presenting artists’ work with passion and intellectual rigor, and to bringing the utmost care and precision to the showcasing of their visions.

As the program has evolved, the gallery has broadened its scope, collaborating with artists at all stages of their careers so that various historical lineages can enter into dialogue with one another. What has not changed, however, is the desire to foster greater understanding of Los Angeles’ development as an important city for art since World War II. David Kordansky Gallery sees itself as an institution firmly rooted in its hometown and in California, even as it embraces cultural activity in the 21st century as a fully global phenomenon. As such, it also treats its participation in the major international art fairs as serious exhibition opportunities, often planning solo presentations and other special programming.

The gallery has long valued the role that publications play in the diffusion of ideas and as snapshots of moments in time. With each year it expands its efforts in this area, publishing an ever-growing range of exhibition catalogues and limited edition artist’s books.
