101/EXHIBIT was founded in 2008 by Sloan Schaffer in Miami, Florida. Named after its original location at 101 NE 40th St., the gallery represents emerging and established contemporary artists.
101/EXHIBIT seeks to highlight the exploratory relationship between artist and audience. Producing shows that reveal something of the artist’s creative process, the gallery fosters wide-ranging dialogues on art through catalogue publications and public programs such as artist’s talks.
Between 2012 and 2013, 101/EXHIBIT relocated to Los Angeles, California. It first opened its West Hollywood location as a pop-up space in 2012, with solo shows by Colin Chillag and Jason Shawn Alexander. 101/EXHIBIT subsequently closed its space in Miami and opened up a second L.A. space in central Hollywood, which includes two expansive gallery rooms and two studios for guest artists.
In addition to its two artist studios, 101/EXHIBIT’s Hollywood space includes a library, a collection of twentieth and twenty-first century artworks, and a social lounge with dining facilities. Construction is underway on additional studios as well as a media and materials lab.
101/EXHIBIT’s artist-in-residency program, though in development, serves as pivotal guide for the gallery. Fostering the exchange of ideas and techniques, the residency program emerges from 101/EXHIBIT’s focus on the creative process and its belief in artistic expression as a dynamic facet of human expression.
The gallery has expanded from its focus on painting and figuration to its current emphasis on artistic experimentation and process. Embracing abstraction, multimedia and installation, 101/EXHIBIT works with its artists on solo shows that reveal turning points within an artist’s oeuvre.
We currently have a full roster of artists, and are not accepting portfolios or submissions. Thank you for your interest and support.
