Gallery 1988 - West

7308 Melrose Avenue
Los Angeles, CA 90046


About us:

Since it’s opening in 2004, Gallery1988 has become one of the nation’s most talked about art galleries. Sitting on the world famous shopping mecca of Melrose Ave (now at 7308 Melrose), G1988 was opened by California natives Katie Sutton and Jensen Karp, and was the first pop-culture focused art gallery in the world, as well as a premiere venue to witness the rise of emerging artists before they break.

Openings at the gallery have seen upwards of 2,500 people attending in one night, including celebrities such as JJ Abrams, Paul Rudd, Julia Louise Dreyfus, Seth Rogen, Guillermo Del Toro, Seth Green, Kristen Schaal, Jonah Hill, Linkin Park, Nick Kroll and Joss Whedon admiring the walls. An annual show at G1988, "Crazy 4 Cult" receives worldwide press and over 1,000,000 website hits on the day of the opening reception every year. G1988 also created a marketing division within the space to create art-focused, and worldwide, campaigns for companies and properties like Paramount Pictures, LOST, Breaking Bad, Marvel’s The Avengers, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Sony, Cartoon Network, Mattel and The Academy Awards. Once deemed “marketing genius” by Entertainment Weekly and voted “Art Gallery of the Year” by LA Weekly, G1988 has become the stop for all things pop culture and art. For the past 6 years, Gallery1988 has helped nurture and create a collective of artists who call G1988 their home-base, allowing collectors to purchase affordable artwork from art stars on the rise, before their price range skyrockets..
