In celebration of Mark Moore Gallery's relocation to Culver City (CA), OPEN will commemorate both the premiere of the 5790 Washington Boulevard space as well as Mark Moore's twenty-fifth year of business.

Featuring works by the twenty-five artists that encompass the current program, OPEN acts as an inaugural introduction and homage to the gallery's evolution. The exhibition features an amalgamation of recent and exemplary works from each of the artists that have shaped Mark Moore Gallery's projects, while also previewing the upcoming shows of 2011. Now housed in a preserved Historic Building, the gallery will begin the new decade in a renovated space by Peter Zellner of ZELLNERPLUS (Culver City, CA), whose previous projects have included Susanne Vielmetter Los Angeles Projects (CA), REDCAT (CA), LAXART (CA), Wallspace Gallery (NY), Matthew Marks Gallery (opening 2011, CA), and many others. Recently highlighted on Art + Auction's "Power" list, Zellner has devised a contemporary compliment to the preexisting brick façade, vaulted wood ceilings and enclosed courtyard that comprises the new 3,200 square-foot gallery.

Establishing the next phase in a continuing institution, OPEN will act as the vernissage for a celebratory exhibition and proliferation to come.
