This exhibition features new work from LA25, a group of 25 emerging Los Angeles artists selected for inclusion in an innovative project presented by the law firm of Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP. LA25 was born out of a unique vision to support the area’s arts community while also celebrating Skadden’s 25 years in Los Angeles. Over the course of three years, LA25 has presented the work of artists who, at the time of selection, had not had previous commercial gallery representation. The artists were selected by a jury of art professionals from some of the most renowned art schools in the Los Angeles area: Art Center College of Design, CalArts, Claremont Graduate University, Otis College of Art and Design, UC Irvine, UCLA, UC Riverside and USC.
