July 10 – August 29 2021
Wednesday – Friday, Noon – 5PM by Appt.
Saturday + Sunday, Noon – 5PM

Minjae Kim’s inaugural solo exhibition, “I Was Evening All Afternoon” comprises seating, case pieces, lighting, and objets rendered from a material palette that deftly mixes solid woods, bamboo, fiberglass, ceramic, plaster, lacquer, raw canvas, pomegranate-dyed silk, and—importantly, vitally—a pair of gourds. A catalog accompanying the exhibition features a beautiful essay by Kim’s friend and colleague, the writer Su Wu, in which a quote from Wallace Stevens casually volleyed by Wu happily and inadvertently provides the architect-turned-furniture-maker with the title for the self-same exhibition. Visit Minjae’s debut exhibition through the end of August.

Marta Back-of-House

New paintings from Joey Cocciardi’s summer-appropriate ‘Bathers’ series are situated as a browsable archive atop and amidst a resin console (2016 / 2021) by Ross Hansen. Overlapping graduates of Michigan’s esteemed Cranbrook Academy—Hansen in 2011 and Cocciardi in 2012—the Los Angeles-based artists recently connected over processes and materials common to their divergent and nevertheless harmonious outputs. Be in touch for more information about either artist’s work(s).

Marta

Marta is a gallery that hosts works at the meeting points of art and design. Founded in Los Angeles in 2019, the gallery makes space for artists to experiment with the utility of design, and for designers to explore the occasional abandonment of function. Marta’s curatorial and publication programs take interest in both the process of an object’s creation as well the narrative of its creator(s). Marta embraces the intersection of disciplines, advocates for diversity in design, and promotes access to the arts.
