New Galleries: Foxy Production, Société, Et al.

December 04, 2013

Art Los Angeles Contemporary is proud to host several first-time exhibitors at this year’s fair, several of which began as independent, noncommercial practices before taking on a roster of represented artists.

Foxy Production opened as a storefront space in Williamsburg, Brooklyn before moving to its ground-floor space in Chelsea since 2008. The gallery has a track record of nurturing and launching a diverse roster of artists, with solo exhibitions at the gallery leading to presentations at major museums, galleries and biennials. While committed to the expanding careers of its represented artists, Foxy Production has also presented a number of specially curated exhibitions and performances comprising a range of artists beyond the gallery program. At the fair, the gallery will present new work from Sterling Ruby and London-based artist David Noonan, whose collages and screenprints were recently featured in a solo exhibition at the Contemporary Art Museum, St. Louis.

Société in Berlin has developed a diverse program which reflects the expanding landscape of contemporary art. Founded initially for the presentation of artist projects, the program transformed into a gallery in 2009 with primarily solo exhibitions for its growing roster of represented artists. The gallery continues to work with artists outside its program through projects and publications, including the launch of a new collection by fashion designer Nhu Duong (2012), a publication of short stories by Jeanette Mundt (2013), twelve-inch records with musicians and performance artists Nic Xedro (2013) and Sergei Tcherepnin (2011), and a public performance with David Rhodes at Bahnhof Zoo (2009).

Located in the basement of a dry cleaners in San Francisco’s Chinatown, Et al. was founded on the principle of supporting artists and their practices. Et al. began as a moniker for the curatorial practices of Jackie Im and Aaron Harbour, including exhibitions, publications and a lending library, before expanding into a commercial practice with the addition of Facundo Argañaz in 2012. In addition to exhibiting its roster of represented artists, the gallery also hosts presentations from other artists, writers and curators. Et al. aims to be a site for exchange and experimentation, a place for artists to stretch their practice and engage in dialogue.
