Charlie James Gallery was formed and opened in 2008 in Chinatown, Los Angeles, and is owned and directed by Charlie James, a collector turned gallerist who had a background in CRM application consulting at Microsoft and other companies before opening the business. The gallery’s ethos asserts that art should engage with the time of its making, and is known for platforming work of significant political and cultural engagement. It has built a strong reputation for platforming and historicizing numerous young artists from Los Angeles and beyond.
Works by our artists appear in esteemed museum collections ranging from the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Guggenheim Museum, the Smithsonian Institution, the LA County Museum of Art, the Hammer Museum, MoCA LA, the MFA Boston, the Walker Art Center, and many others. The gallery operates out of two spaces on Chung King Road in Los Angeles, California.
