AndrewShire Gallery - Los Angeles - USA

By 2006 the gallery was hosting ongoing art history and contemporary art survey classes for the Korean-speaking public. The content of these classes ranged from the survey of ancient art and architecture to lectures on conceptualism which emphasized critical issues in postmodern philosophy.
March of 2006 marked another transformation when the gallery established a satellite space in Singapore. In hopes of creating a platform to source and spotlight contemporary art in the region, the gallery anticipates a greater cross-pollination of ideas between east and west. The exhibition program in Singapore begins late in 2007.
Over the past four years since the gallery changed ownership, it has increasingly dedicated its program to the development and exhibition of established artists and to younger local talent. While continuing its international focus by bringing art of the Asian Pacific Basin, Europe and other countries to greater Los Angeles, AndrewShire Gallery remains dedicated to the exhibition of innovative work by up-and-coming art makers. The goal of contributing to the arts information flow and to the public dialog among diverse groups of people by stimulating interaction, appreciation and an exchange of ideas not only helps to maintain the gallery’s financial stability, but also promotes support for public awareness in the arts. Through projects, events and exhibitions, AndrewShire Gallery strives to provide opportunities for the Korean-American community and for other groups of people interested in contemporary art to engage in this interchange. It sustains an interest in making connections between artists and communities that would, otherwise, remain separated from each other.
Located on Wilshire Boulevard in the heart of LA’s Koreatown, AndrewShire Gallery is located one-half block west of Western Avenue at the southeast corner of St. Andrews near the Wiltern Theater.
