Formed in 2005 by Joel Mesler and Daniel Hug, RENTAL was conceptualized to invite galleries to Los Angeles to “rent” exhibition space outside of their primary location. RENTAL curates galleries not artists. This atypical model allowed RENTAL to establish relationships with various galleries such as Raster Gallery in Warsaw, Galerie Christian Nagel in Cologne, and Ibid Projects from London. These galleries are emblematic of the curatorial decisions that define RENTAL’S program. The galleries selected will exhibit work that best reflect their own program.
Oliver Twist includes the following artists from the galleries that will exhibit at RENTAL throughout the year:
