In 1969, Horikawa Michio, schoolteacher and member of the artist collective GUN (Group Ultra Niigata), filled out the customs paperwork to mail a one-kilogram river stone from Niigata, the proverbial 'backside of Japan', to President Nixon.

'He was not a "political" kind of person. He just wanted to be honest and straight. But it was not easy in Korea to live like that,' writes curator Kim Inhye on artist Yun Hyong-keun.

David Kordansky Gallery was established in 2003 with the desire both to discover and to engage with the vastly diverse group of artists living and working in Los Angeles. One of the primary ideas quickly became utilising the gallery not merely to showcase individual artists, but also to realise the dialogue, both implicit and explicit, between them. It is through a direct connection with our artists that we have discovered a wider international community, as well as the dynamic cross-pollination of ideas that takes place between Los Angeles and other global centres.
The gallery has quickly grown from primarily focusing on emerging art to an internationally recognised program featuring artists who have exhibited in acclaimed museums and galleries worldwide. The program increasingly includes artists from different generations, so that a variety of historical lineages can enter into conversation with one another.
David Kordansky Gallery currently operates a 20,000 square foot facility in Mid-City Los Angeles. Opened in September 2014, this new location encompasses two adjacent and equally sized gallery spaces, through which the gallery maintains an ambitious and expanding program of solo, group, and historical exhibitions.
