We offered works from the collection of a pioneering LA gallerist.
Works from the Collection of Joni Gordon
Celebrated for nurturing the careers of emerging artists, Joni Gordon left an indelible mark on the Los Angeles art scene through her commitment as gallerist, collector, and co-founder the Los Angeles Institute of Contemporary Art. LAMA proudly presented a selection of 30 works from the personal collection she built along with her husband Monte, many by artists whose careers Gordon personally championed, among them Martha Alf, Tony Berlant, Llyn Foulkes, Joe Goode, and Ed Ruscha.
In August, we joined Rago/Wright and held our first auction as part of the company on October 24th. Worlds collided in the best possible way.
With the addition of LAMA to Rago/Wright, we've brought together the three strongest independently-owned design brands in the auction industry. This marks a whole new chapter, and the future looks bright.
