Tieken Gallery LA is the latest Chinatown contemporary art gallery, and is opening on 961 Chung King Road, with a reception being held on Saturday, October 21, from 7-10 pm. The pedestrian walkway of Chung King Road provides an unparalleled opportunity for city-dwellers to forget about traffic and stroll the area at leisure. It’s also not unusual on any given Saturday night to find some great live music in the area. Check back on Juxtapoz to see photos from the opening of this exciting new space.
From gallery owner Fred Tieken: "Ever since Gail and I visited a Chinatown gallery opening a few years ago, this urban gem in downtown Los Angeles has held a special place in our hearts. Its history is interwoven with the city itself, and its present incarnation as a home for artists, galleries, photographers, musicians and one-of-a-kind shops, makes it a regular stop for a night out on the town. So, when our friend Mat Gleason from Coagula Curatorial called and said he knew of an available space just a few steps from his gallery, we had to take a look."
