LOS ANGELES, CA.- Building on Sotheby’s longtime presence in Los Angeles over the last four decades, Sotheby’s announced the opening of the company’s first public exhibition space on the West Coast with a new, expanded footprint in the heart of Beverly Hills. Opening to the public on 14 October and located at 350 N Camden Drive, the flagship street-level gallery space will be inaugurated with an exhibition of select works from the Macklowe Collection running until 17 October, spotlighting nine of the most significant works from an unparalleled collection of modern and contemporary art making its worldwide tour before a dedicated auction on 15 November in New York. Following the inaugural exhibition, Sotheby’s Los Angeles will host rotating presentations of luxury, design, jewelry & watches, and fine art, including bespoke exhibition programming specialized to the Beverly Hills location, providing Sotheby’s with new opportunities to reach a broader audience and showcase the best in fine art and luxury.

Mari-Claudia Jiménez, Sotheby’s Chairman, Managing Director and Worldwide Head of Business Development, Global Fine Art, said: “The West Coast has been an important market for Sotheby’s for decades, and reinforcing our footprint in Los Angeles is a critical element for continued success and growth in the region. As demonstrated with the immensely successful Palm Beach and East Hampton locations we opened in the U.S. last year, we’re committed to bolstering our presence in key markets and developing new ways to engage with clients directly in these regions.”

Located in the heart of Beverly Hills, the 1941 building housing the new space was designed by influential Southern Californian architects Douglas Hannold and George Vernon Russell, and is a rare example of pre-war modern architecture in the city. Within the 4,300 square foot building are flexible gallery spaces with 22’ ceilings, private viewing salons, and dedicated offices for Sotheby’s specialists and staff. Hosting regular public hours throughout the week, the new space facilitates a model where discovery of fine art and luxury objects is both convenient and centrally located. Items and artworks will be available for immediate purchase directly in the L.A. space via either Sotheby’s online Buy Now platform, or through private sale. Additionally, the expanded space allows Sotheby’s Los Angeles to invite local organizations and community partners to collaborate on arts education and non-profit programming, in addition to special events.

Peter Kloman, Head of Sotheby’s Los Angeles, stated: “An established destination for lovers of art, luxury, and culture in Southern California, Sotheby’s Los Angeles has long been a strategic center for the company. Years ago, our first space in the city was located in Beverly Hills, so the move to our new location is a long-awaited homecoming for us, and we are thrilled to be returning to such a vibrant and culturally rich community. We are looking forward to inviting collectors from Los Angeles, the West Coast, and all over the world to our new home.”

Highlights from the 65 works coming to auction this November from the Macklowe Collection that will be on view at Sotheby’s Los Angeles include landmark works by Franz Kline, Jeff Koons, Andy Warhol, Gerhard Richter, and Robert Rauschenberg, among others. The Macklowe Collection is one of the most important collections, of any kind, ever to come to the market. Each work from the collection is a consummate masterpiece in its own right; together they constitute an unrivalled ensemble that charts the highpoints of Western artistic achievement of the last 80 years. Acquired over the course of half a century, the collection is the fruit of decades of searching, honing, and refining, driven by immense patience and an innate understanding of quality. Separate press release available for more information on the Macklowe Collection.
