China Art Objects's Steve Hanson on the Wild, True History of L.A.'s Chinatown Art Scene | Art for Sale | Artspace
Before the Los Angeles art scene was the Shangri-La—or hype machine, depending on your point of view—that it is today, now spreading from the Eastside to Hollywood to Culver City and beyond, it was a tiny enclave of cool ensconced in a gritty, peculiar setting: the city's historic Chinatown. Why there? Largely because of the energy generated by one renegade artist-run outfit, China Art Objects Galleries, that opened its doors on Chung King Road in 1999 and helped usher in the laid-back-but-polished, multidisciplinary era of L.A. art that has characterized the past decade and a half.
