“Temporary Space” Launches Spring 2015 in Los Angeles, CA
Artist & Buyer Centric Experiment Aims to Empower Artists and
Eliminate Gallery Middleman
(September 30, 2014 – Los Angeles, CA) Temporary Space, an entirely new art-viewing
and buying platform, that incorporates a physical and digital experience, will launch in
Spring, 2015 with an exhibition of works by Richard Shelton.
Temporary Space presents the complete archives of selected mid-to-late career artists
through exhibitions and digital applications. The mission of Temporary Space is to
enable rich and unfiltered interaction with an artist’s entire body of work, and to
make purchasing the art simple and fast. A revolutionary platform for mid-to-late
career artists to represent themselves to an art-buying public, Temporary Space is
democratizing the art world by presenting an artist’s entire output for viewer
consideration, instead of the artists’ most recent works as dictated by the traditional
gallery model. This new framework opens the vaults to allow collectors to access works
throughout the career of each artist, at all price points, and caters to the new art buying
world where everyone can be a collector; not just the 1% who visit traditional galleries.
"Temporary Space is an exhibition platform meant to empower artists by connecting
them directly with art buyers. Our goal is to get people, from all walks of life, excited
about experiencing art," states Stacie Meyer, Executive Director of Temporary Space.
"The traditional art gallery experience can be intimidating for artists and buyers. At
Temporary Space we want to create a harmonious connection between the artist and
the viewer/buyer. For the first time, artists and collectors can have an open access
Temporary Space is not a gallery. Artists are not represented, but provided a platform to
celebrate their careers. For the first time collectors will have an opportunity to dig
deeper, discover works and support artists. For the artist, Temporary Space is a direct
connection to the collector, an opportunity to showcase all of their works and make their
own sales without the traditional 50-60% gallery commission.
Temporary Space LA is located at 5522 Wilshire Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90036.
Exhibition Hours are: Monday – Saturday from 10am – 8pm. For additional information,
