New Annenberg Space Slated to Open

The Annenberg Foundation, one of the nation’s largest privately owned foundations, recently opened a new community space in Los Angeles dedicated to both digital images and print photography.

The Annenberg Space for Photography opened its doors on March 27 with the exhibition “L8S ANG3LES” (which will be reviewed in the July/August issue of Afterimage). The new 10,000 square foot facility, located on the former site of the Shubert Theatre, features a state-of-the-art digital projection gallery along with a traditional print exhibit area.

“Photography is one of the most accessible and personal forms of art. We are thrilled about creating a space completely dedicated to it which will compliment the landscape of existing cultural institutions nationally and in Los Angeles,” said Vice President and Trustee, Wallis Annenberg, in a statement on the Foundation’s Web site.

General admission to the Annenberg Space for Photography is free and will present images focused on the human condition as an expression of the philanthropic work of the Foundation and its Trustees. Guest curators will be invited to work directly with the Trustees throughout the year. Along with featured exhibits, which will change several times a year, there will also be weekly shows. The opening exhibit is a group show including eight Los Angeles-based photographers in the genres of fine art, architecture, documentary, fashion, photojournalism, and celebrity portraits.

“We see the creation of the Annenberg Space for Photography as a service to the community where visitors can see the world through a different lens and leave feeling motivated to make positive change,” added Annenberg in his statement.
