Meliksetian | Briggs was founded in 2012 by Anna Meliksetian and Michael Briggs. Featuring an intergenerational program of Los Angeles-based and international artists, the gallery intends to be a site of discovery, experimentation, cultural and educational exchange, while working closely with and supporting artists, helping them achieve their ambitions.
The artists in the program investigate various positions, addressing relevant and topical contemporary, philosophical, aesthetic and sociopolitical ideas in their work. These themes include the dialectic between the production and reception of an artwork; aesthetics and exchange value; ideas of self as performer and selfhood as performance; identity and post-colonialism and cultural theory and appropriation.
