LOS ANGELES, CA.- Regen Projects announced its expansion and move to a new location at 6750 Santa Monica Boulevard, in the heart of Hollywood. The new building will open with an inaugural show of gallery artists on September 22, 2012.

Since the founding of the original gallery in 1989 at 619 North Almont Drive in West Hollywood, Regen Projects has focused its representation on international contemporary artists at the forefront of their practice. This focus, combined with an unwavering support for Los Angeles art, has made Regen Projects a mainstay of the international art community. After 23 years in West Hollywood, Regen Projects is excited to continue its role as a catalyzing force at the head of a thriving arts community. The new gallery will serve as an artistic anchor, establishing an eastward shift in the cultural center of Los Angeles. With this next step, the gallery will continue its influential work and look toward a vibrant and innovative future.

The new 20,000 square foot building was designed by Los Angeles architect Michael Maltzan. The new gallery will allow for larger scale exhibitions, back of house operations, and a private outdoor sculpture deck. Maltzan's work has been widely recognized, and numerous accolades have included the 2012 American Academy of Arts and Letters Award for Architecture; 5 Progressive Architecture awards; 29 commendations from the American Institute of Architects; and the Rudy Bruner Foundation's Gold Medal for Urban Excellence. He has worked on several museums and cultural centers including the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; the Museum of Modern Art's temporary headquarters at PS1, Long Island City, Queens, NY; Inner City Arts, Los Angeles; the Hergott/Shepard Residence which was included in "The Un-Private House" at MoMA in 1999; and the multiple award winning Pittman/Dowell Residence.
