"While we are shifting to a beautiful new gallery space, the move will encourage our ambition without dampening our edginess – it only broadens our reach," said Max Presneill, a founding member of Durden and Ray. "We are partnering with galleries and collectives on several continents to bring some of the best of the world's art to LA, and to get LA art seen in more places."

The exhibitions also will foster international exchanges by bringing artists from across the U.S. and around the world to the new space.
