Cherry and Martin
Until last year the Cherry and Martin gallery was a bit of a local secret in Los Angeles. Much better known in Europe due to its participation in a host of European art fairs, the gallery’s 2009 move to the Culver City Art District has made art-loving Angelenos aware of its diverse contemporary program. I sat down with Mary Leigh Cherry to discuss the gallery’s past, present and promising future.
Los Angeles, California, USA
Mary Leigh Cherry and Philip Martin started Cherry and Martin in January 2006. The gallery represents Los Angeles and international artists, collaborating closely with them in long-term relationships that facilitate understanding and awareness of their work. Cherry and Martin participates in art fairs in both the United States and abroad in addition to its regular exhibition schedule. The gallery exhibits innovative, experimental and ambitious works in all media.

PERFECTLY CONCOCTED CONTEXT BY JONATHAN MONK
June 24th to August 19th, 2017
Perfectly Concocted Context by Jonathan Monk brings together three generations of artists within the frame of Jonathan Monk’s studio. The walls of the gallery space will be wallpapered with full-scale photographs of the interior of Monk’s studio, which contains works by many artists that Monk both admires and uses in his own practice. Against the fictive backdrop of his studio, Monk will place inside the gallery space, a diverse group of artworks. Monk will present the studio – a site of reflection and production – as a finished artwork, layering the artist’s studio within the gallery.The exhibition includes works by Bas Jan Ader, John Baldessari, Nina Beier, Matt Connors, Ceal Floyer, Ryan Gander, Piero Golia, Isabell Heimerdinger, Robert Heinecken, Jenny Holzer, Louise Lawler, Sol LeWitt, Robert Overby, Michael Rey, Ed Ruscha, David Shrigley, Ettore Sottsass, Lew Thomas and Christopher Williams.
