David Zwirner’s Los Angeles Flagship Gallery to Open on May 23

Selldorf Architects, May 3, 2024

We are thrilled to share that David Zwirner’s Los Angeles flagship location at 606 North Western Avenue will open on May 23 with an inaugural exhibition presenting one work by each of its 80 artists. The newly constructed three-story building spans 15,000 sf of exhibition space and includes private viewing rooms, offices, and an outdoor terrace with views of the Hollywood sign. On the ground floor, skylights provide an abundance of controlled natural light to the primary public art spaces. Linking East and West Coast flagship locations, Selldorf designed a concrete staircase reminiscent of the distinctive stair at David Zwirner 20th Street in New York.

In an article for the New York Times by Robin Pogrebin, “Zwirner said he is particularly pleased that the new gallery gives him the flexibility to offer artists small or large shows as well as two shows at once.”

The opening of 606 marks the completion of a 30,000 sf new art complex for the Gallery by Selldorf Architects. All three adjacent buildings are unified by their white stucco facades, the spaces at 612 and 616 North Western Avenue opened in 2023 featuring skylights that fill the galleries with natural light, outdoor spaces designed by Elysian Landscapes provide greenery at ground level and on the roof, as well as a dedicated bookshop spotlighting David Zwirner Books.
