That LA is having a cultural ‘moment’ is well documented, pushing the West Coast art scene onto the world stage. But Los Angeles has long been an incubator of art and a home for artists. That experimental energy is alive and kicking in the vast warehouses and lofts of the Arts District. With the imminent opening of Nick Jones’s Soho Warehouse and the recent arrival of behemoth Hauser, Wirth & Schimmel putting Los Angeles firmly on the art map, they make a statement to the rest of the world that, as a global art metropolis, Los Angeles hasn’t just arrived – it’s got jaws. Placing yourself at the nerve center of a contemporary art explosion could be a wise move, and certainly shows you have your art in the right place.
