YoungProjects opened in 2009 with two 4,000 sq. ft gallery spaces devoted exclusively to moving imagery. Designed to be less of a new media gallery than a project space, the gallery is designed to operate on several levels: first and foremost, it's dedicated to the idea that moving image artworks are concrete art-forms, much like painting, sculpture and fine art photography; Secondly, it operates as a project space for both, experimental film artists and contemporary artists who are interested in exploring the full capabilities of the various mediums that encompass moving image artworks and digital mediums. Thirdly, it's devoted to bringing the very best works available to Los Angeles, often from other countries, to allow them to be seen in the best possible conditions by a community of artists, curators, collectors and journalists.
Each of the two galleries has a different aesthetic approach: one offers a gallery/black box setting designed by Joe Day of Deegen Day Design llc., which presents the work in a more contemporary or modernist setting, and the other offers a more expansive space, with state-of-the-art equipment and larger screens.
The gallery presents 4 - 8 shows per year and each show runs for approximately three months (three months during the summer). The goal is to present monographic or group exhibitions (both historic and contemporary) where as many as 15 - 30 works can be shown simultaneously.
We are thankful for the extraordinary support and generosity of Charles S. Cohen, Helen Varola and the Design Loves Art Program
