Rendering of one of the new Ibid Gallery spaces.


Two years after opening a project space in Los Angeles, Ibid Gallery now has a permanent home in that city’s Boyle Heights neighborhood, a massive complex that includes three separate exhibition spaces. The inaugural programming will feature shows by David Adamo and Devin Farrand, as well as a group show, “Sleep,” curated by Paolo Colombo, that will include work by Ed Ruscha, Rosemarie Trockel, and Felix Gonzalez-Torres. All three shows open on September 25.

Like many spaces in the area, the galleries are converted warehouses, and Ibid has already has a specific vision for each venue. Gallery One will feature shows put together by guest curators, Gallery Two will showcase “works of significant provenance,” while Gallery Three will show emerging Los Angeles–based artists, or emerging artists who have not yet shown in the city.

Ibid now stands at 670 South Anderson Street in Boyle Heights, putting it adjacent to Maccarone’s Los Angeles gallery and the 365 Mission project space. And if that address sounds familiar, it’s because the new art venue for Hollywood’s United Talent Agency is also at 670 South Anderson Street—its space is an annex to the Ibid cluster of galleries.
