David Kordansky Gallery was established in 2003 as part of a burgeoning artistic community in Los Angeles’s Chinatown neighborhood. Originally a cutting-edge incubator for emerging talent, it quickly grew into a widely respected voice in the international conversation surrounding new and recent art. Its exhibition program is dedicated to presenting artists’ work with passion and intellectual rigor.

The gallery currently operates a 20,000-square-foot facility in Mid-City Los Angeles. This location encompasses two adjacent and equally sized gallery spaces, allowing for maximum flexibility in the mounting of solo, group, and historical exhibitions. In 2020, it will expand its premises, adding another 2,000-square-foot exhibition space and a landscaped courtyard that will accommodate a diversity of programming, including performance, film, and outdoor sculpture.

Part of the gallery’s mission is to foster greater understanding of Los Angeles’s development as an important city for art since World War II. It is an institution firmly rooted in its hometown and in California, while encouraging dialogue across geographies and generations and embracing cultural activity in the 21st century as a fully global phenomenon.

The gallery has long valued the role that publications play in the diffusion of ideas and as snapshots of moments in time, publishing an ever-growing range of exhibition catalogues and limited-edition artists' books.
