MMG Packs Bags for Culver City

After twelve successful years in Bergamot Station (Santa Monica, CA), Mark Moore Gallery is thrilled to announce its permanent relocation to Culver City, CA. In conjunction with the grand opening of the new space, the gallery will also debut the much-anticipated solo exhibition for renowned local artist, Mario Ybarra Jr.

Originally built in 1925, the building that will soon house Mark Moore Gallery has been deemed a Historic Building by Culver City’s preservation program. Featuring a brick façade, vaulted wood ceilings and an enclosed courtyard, the 3,200 square-foot gallery is located in close proximity to Roberts & Tilton, Carmichael Gallery and Blythe Projects on Washington Boulevard two blocks from La Cienega Boulevard.

The interior concept and design was developed by the globally-reputed architect Peter Zellner of ZELLNERPLUS (Culver City, CA), whose previous projects have included Susanne Vielmetter Los Angeles Projects (CA), REDCAT (CA), LA><ART (CA), Wallspace Gallery (NY), Matthew Marks Gallery (opening 2011, CA), and many others. With both a main gallery exhibition space and Project Room integrated into the gallery, Zellner has accounted for the need to showcase the diversified nature of Mark Moore Gallery’s program, with specified features tailored to display video and installation works. Opening to the public for the first time on January 8th, 2011, the gallery’s inaugural exhibition will be new work by Ybarra Jr., a showcase that will include multimedia elements as we celebrate his first solo show in Los Angeles since 2007.

Gallery President Mark Moore founded Mark Moore Gallery in 1992 in Santa Monica (CA). Since its inception, the gallery has gone on to participate in international art fairs – including those in Miami, New York, Chicago, Cologne, and London – and represents over twenty-five contemporary emerging and mid-career artists. Joined by Director Catlin Moore, Assistant Director Matthew Gardocki, Registrar Ashley Ayala and Preparator Jonah Olson, Moore is eager to join the Culver City community with an ambitious schedule for 2011.
