When owners Dominique Levy and Robert Mnuchin decided to expand their New York gallery to Los Angeles in 2008, they selected a location in Venice because of its proximity to the coast as well as the artistic neighborhood that surrounds it. Now comprised of two buildings and an outdoor space, it’s also home to a backyard. The art in the yard, always big, ambitious or both, reaches an audience far larger than the one L&M would have if it kept its exhibitions inside gallery walls.
