Named after a box sign that had been left behind by the space’s previous tenant, China Art Objects was founded by Peter Kim, Amy Yao, Mark Heffernan, Steve Hanson and Giovanni Intra. Shortly after its opening however, the gallery became a project of critic Intra and musician/librarian Hanson. The gallery was instrumental in bringing about a renaissance in Los Angeles art and in particular the Chinatown district, where it was the first gallery to set up shop along Chung King Road. Designed by artist Pae White, the gallery officially opened its doors in January 1999.
China Art Objects’ success quickly attracted other galleries and alternative art spaces to Chinatown. With China Art Objects at its center, Chinatown grew to become one of the primary commercial art gallery districts in Los Angeles – most importantly for emerging art.
China Art Objects moved from its landmark Chinatown location in 2010 to Culver City. 6086 Comey Avenue, Los Angeles, California, 90034 (323) 965 – 2264
