The new gallery, Midant & Daggenhurst, created by Antoine Midant and Spartan Daggenhurst, developed from a desire to showcase artists that are younger than what the public considers "young artists" to be. They believe that talented artists should not have to be marginalized during their developmental periods; nor should they have to wait indefinitely for that first show to put them on the map.

They believe that the time to show young artists is now, and that Los Angeles is without question on the cutting edge in this regard. It's a city that provides plenty of environments that give artists the ability to tailor a space to their creative needs. Choosing pop-up locations rather than one permanent locations allows Midant and Daggenhurst to focus on making sure every exhibition fulfils their standard of excellence.

The featured artists, Emily Coyle and Lucien Dante are both recent Bard College graduates. For the project that Coyle named UnDone, she applied a mechanical-like use of the human body to the unhinging of rugs or tapestries that were once considered "finished." Dante chose to display his "gargoyles" - pieces which can measure up to 14 feet tall, and use an array of materials including wood, metal and organic fabrics. 


Opening reception Saturday, November 5th, 6-9PM. 

Antoine Midant was born in 1995 in Paris; Spartan Daggenhurst was born in 1993 in Munich. They graduated together from Bard College in 2016, respectively from the photography and the music programs.
