Giovanni’s Room opened in Downtown, Los Angeles, in October 2022 with a solo exhibition by Los Angeles based artist Michon Sanders. Located in Claud Beelman’s Ninth and Broadway Building at 850 S Broadway, Beelman was one of the leading architects of the Art Deco and Moderne movements on the West Coast, having designed downtown’s Superior Oil Company headquarters (1955, now the Standard Downtown Hotel), Westwood’s Occidental Petroleum building (1962, now the Hammer Museum), and Downtown's beloved turquoise Eastern Columbia Building (1930).
The gallery will feature 3,000 square feet of flexible, window lit gallery space. The Gallery was designed by the L.A.-based architect & engineer Lindon Schultz, acclaimed for his designed studios throughout downtown, including the United Artists Building, now home to the Ace Hotel.
Giovanni’s Room (est. 2022) is a gallery that fosters and promotes under-recognized and emerging local and international artists, as well as new perspectives on established artists. Founded by Jeremy Maldonado, the program is informed by interests in art, film, humanitarianism, and interdisciplinary practices.
