Matthew Marks Opens In L.A. With Ellsworth Kelly-designed FacadeAuthor:Marissa Gluck
As of last night, there is a new gallery populating West Hollywood’s crowded gallery row near the Pacific Design Center. Designed by local architect Peter Zellner, the 3,500 square foot white cube is the Matthew Marks Gallery, another New York expansion, joining Perry Rubenstein and L&M Gallery, both recent transplants to L.A.’s art scene.
The inaugural show, open until April 7th, is Ellsworth Kelly: Los Angeles and to mark the opening, the building’s façade features a monumental sculpture by the artist. Measuring 8×40 feet and installed 30 feet off the ground, the dark colored floating bar is the first sculpture by Kelly to incorporate a building’s architecture into his work. Inside the naturally lit gallery, the show features six of Kelly’s simple, bright paintings and includes two early works that inspired the facade – a collage and painting from 1954 and 1966, respectively.
Matthew Marks Gallery is located at 1062 North Orange Grove, Los Angeles.
