LA Louver information
The best art gallery in Venice, and arguably the best in all of LA, LA Louver was established by Peter Gouls in 1975, and since 1994 has been housed in a landmark building designed by Frederick Fisher. It's a modern and contemporary art gallery featuring rotating, museum-quality exhibitions that show for five to six weeks.
We saw a mind-bending exhibit of German furnishings from the 1970s in the downstairs gallery, which included Nazi distributed Volksenfanger radios and strange interactive twists. Upstairs there was work by Boyle Heights–street-artist-turned-fine-artist Gajin Fujita. They also represent David Hockney. All are welcome.
