Founded in 2014, The Mistake Room occupies a renovated industrial warehouse at the edge of the Downtown Arts District in Los Angeles where it presents ambitious new work by an array of international artists, many of whom have never-before shown in LA. It operates under a multi-year, thematic curatorial framework that allows for rigorous investigation and in-depth artistic interrogation. Starting in 2019, it will undertake a 2-year program cycle of gallery exhibitions, public events and publications organized around the themes of memory and cultural identity, entitled Histories of a Vanishing Present.
The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts is established in New York, NY. His will called for the creation of a foundation dedicated to “advancement of the visual arts,” and he left nearly his entire estate to the cause.
