2020 LA OPEN
TAG Gallery is proud to announce the 3rd annual LA Open Exhibition for 2020! This juried exhibition aims to serve as a gateway for a diverse range of artists in the greater Los Angeles area to display their artworks on Museum Row, home to four major Los Angeles museums.
TAG’s calendar year commences with this vibrant exhibition of works by local artists. The focus of this exhibition is to illustrate that artists are strong and impactful when they come together to facilitate dialogue amongst varied styles of works. To this end, the viewer and artist alike are encouraged to make unapparent connections between works in an effort to facilitate an intimate and unique experience for each viewer.

As part of the Venice Institute of Contemporary Art (ViCA), Juri Koll presents exhibits in their galleries in Los Angeles, and traveling exhibits at museums, galleries, and alternative spaces in the U.S. and abroad, such as Trans Angeles: Crossover Experimentation (curated by Senior Curatorial Advisor Peter Frank) seen at the Chabot Museum in Rotterdam and the Neuer Kunstverein Aschaffenberg e.V. and Wilhelm Morgner Haus Museum in Germany, among other institutions. Other exhibitions have appeared in venues including the Museum of Art and History, LA Art Show, Photo LA and many others in the US, Germany, the Netherlands, Estonia, and Japan. Koll regularly exhibits his paintings, photographs, and art videos. He serves on the LA Advisory Board for Beyond Baroque Literary Arts Center. His documentaries on artists and other art world figures are available in university libraries across the U.S. His films have screened all over the world, in over 70 festivals, including Cannes, the Cork International Film Festival, the Australian International Film Festival, and won many awards.
After graduating from California Institute of the Arts with majors in Fine Art and Film, Mr. Koll produced the first Art/World documentaries from 1990 – 1995. He worked with major curators in their museums and galleries, such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The National Gallery in Washington, D.C., the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and the Museum of Modern Art in San Francisco. His subjects included world famous and infamous artists and art world figures from the Renaissance period to the present. Recently, Juri’s first documentary, In The Steel: A Portrait of Mark di Suvero, (1991), was accepted into the Archives of American Art at the Smithsonian Institution.
