The nonprofit art space LAXART in Los Angeles has added five people to its board of directors: artists Kim Gordon, Zenas Hutcheson, and Glenn Ligon; Olivia Marciano, the artistic director of the Marciano Art Foundation in the city; and Conor O’Neil, who is a trustee of the Chauncey and Marion Deering McCormick Foundation in Chicago.

Hamza Walker, LAXART’s director, said in a statement to press, “I’m simply giddy—humbled, honored, inspired all at once. These new members heighten our dynamism. Whereas Gordon and Ligon are seminal figures (read rock stars) in the field of contemporary art, Hutcheson, Marciano, and O’Neil mark a new generation of cultural stewardship. They join an already outstanding slate of directors who are our primary supporters and advocates.”

Artists with shows on tap at LAXART include Barbara Stauffacher Solomon, Grace Wales Bonner, and Liz Johnson Artur.
