More on Storefront’s LA Transplant

Last week, we’d talked up all the various happenings and goings-ons surrounding the LA Art Weekend, including mention of the Pop-Up Storefront. Now the LA Times has heard a bit of the buzz surrounding the limited-time-only gallery and put together a pretty interesting piece about it. In it, they describe what’s being shown there out until May 17th, as well as Steven Holl and Vito Acconci‘s work on the space itself, but also some good background on how a gallery from one coast happened to find its way over to another. Here’s a bit:

The idea is to expand the influence of what Grima calls “a unique space, one of the first where the concept of merging art and architecture was addressed and explored by means of radically experimental shows on a shoestring budget.”

“Built into Storefront’s genetic code is the drive to reach beyond New York,” he adds. “We are watched from a distance. When we were looking for a way to expand, we gambled on people wanting to see us in close-up.

Also of note, Storefront’s Flickr collection with loads of photos from LA.
