Blue-chip dealer Matthew Marks chose a funky, off-the-beaten path location next to an Orthodox Jewish mortuary in West Hollywood when he decided to open shop on the Left Coast, and we’re glad he did. Showing such contemporary artists as Ken Price, Charles Ray, Nan Goldin and Robert Gober, the gallery also boasts a sculpture created by artist Ellsworth Kelly for its façade.
