Roberts Projects was founded in Los Angeles in 1999 by Bennett Roberts, Julie Roberts, and the late Jack Tilton. Currently, the gallery operates from a former coffee-roasting factory renovated by Johnston Marklee & Associates in the Culver City arts district.
Roberts Projects Artists
Roberts Projects presents a broad selection of emerging, mid-career, and established artists spanning generations and continents. They work in a variety of disciplines including sculpture, installation, drawing, painting, photography, film, and performance.
Among them are well-established names such as Betye Saar, whose hypnotic multimedia assemblages powerfully critique the sexual and racial stereotypes ingrained in American culture; Zhao Zhao, a nonconformist and anti-authoritarian Chinese contemporary artist; the Californian street photographer and painter Ed Templeton; and New York-based painter Kehinde Wiley, a challenger of Canonical white structures of power in portraiture, who in 2018 became the first African-American artist to paint the official portrait of a President of the United States.
Alongside them are relative newcomers, but with a growing international following, such as the Swiss painter of emotionally tense figurative scenes, Lenz Geerk; Vienna-based Ghanaian painter who creates deeply-textured, richly-coloured portraits, Amoako Boafo; conceptually-driven British painter of semi-abstract expressionistic representations of historic and mythical subjects, Daniel Crews-Chubb; and emerging Californian painter artist Evan Nesbit whose paintings on burlap challenges perceptions of pictorial spaces.
Roberts Projects represents a number of artists, old and young, exploring cultural hybridity and the dynamics of gender race and social status, including Wangari Mathenge, Otis Kwame Kye Quaicoe, Daniel Joseph Martinez, and Jeffrey Gibson.
Roberts Projects Exhibitions and Art Fairs
Seeking to highlight both the notable artistic contributions of its established artists and the developing practices of young artists, the gallery holds significant, museum-quality survey shows. Among them are Bloodlines (2001), which traced the influences of 15 artists pushing boundaries in their mediums; The Object Salon (2013), which required artists to contribute works to fit a set scale; and the rare films-based Projections series (2010, 2013, 2017, 2020).
The gallery also consistently holds cutting-edge, installation-based solo and group exhibitions. These are often accompanied by exhibition catalogues and books produced by the Roberts Projects publication division which was established in 2003.
Representing its artists beyond the gallery, Roberts Projects participates in major art fairs such as Art Basel Miami Beach, Art Los Angeles Contemporary, The Armory Show, ARCO Madrid, Zona Maco in Mexico, EXPO Chicago, and Frieze New York.
The Canadian artist will also maintain ties with Galerie Eva Presenhuber, who are showing Shearer in Zurich this month.
