FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE February 1 2018 Los Angeles, CA
Philip Martin is pleased to present his new venture, Philip Martin Gallery. Philip Martin Gallery will present innovative, experimental and ambitious artworks in all media at its gallery location in Los Angeles, and at art fairs, both in the United States and abroad.
Philip Martin Gallery is proud to announce it will continue to represent the artists represented by Cherry and Martin: Ericka Beckman, Kwame Brathwaite, Brian Bress, Carl Cheng, Holly Coulis, Katy Cowan, Tomory Dodge, Nathan Mabry, T. Kelly Mason, Pat O’Neill, Robert Overby, Bernard Piffaretti, Michael Rey, Adam Silverman and Lew Thomas. All inquires with regard to these artists can be directed to Philip Martin at the new gallery, as can other questions with regard to Cherry and Martin.
In addition, Philip Martin Gallery is proud to present works by those artists associated with the French Supports/Surfaces movement. And, it will continue to explore its interest in expanded film, photography and material practice from the 1960s and 70s, as evidenced in such exhibitions as “The Photographic Object 1970,” which explored the legacy of curator Peter Bunnell’s landmark 1970 Museum of Modern Art exhibition, “Photography into Sculpture.”
Please join Philip Martin Gallery at the upcoming Armory Show in New York March 8-11 to celebrate the new venture. Pier 94, Booth #718, Galleries Section. The new website of Philip Martin Gallery is philipmartingallery.com. The Instagram account is @philipmartingallery. The gallery will begin regular programming with a group show of gallery artists that will open April 28, 2018 at its location at 2712 S. La Cienega Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90034.
Philip Martin would personally like to express his heartfelt thanks to all the artists who presented their work at Cherry and Martin. In their respective bodies of work, and in their own unique ways, these artists provided us with a generous opportunity to consider the changing nature of the art object at the beginning of the twenty-first century. At the same time, these artists pushed us to ask vital questions about who we are today and what it means to live in the context of our product-driven, global mass media culture.
Cherry and Martin was co-founded by Mary Leigh Cherry and Philip Martin in January 2006. Philip Martin would like to thank Mary Leigh Cherry for her hard work and collaboration, and wishes her the best as she pursues her own new interests. Finally, of course, Philip Martin would like to express his deep gratitude to the artists, critics, clients, curators, gallerists, vendors, fabricators, shippers, employees, flâneurs, bon vivants and everyday folks who visited and supported the gallery, found community, and made presenting work at Cherry and Martin a special experience for him.
