- About -

Nazarian / Curcio is a contemporary art gallery in Los Angeles owned by Shulamit Nazarian and Seth Curcio. The gallery was founded by Shulamit Nazarian in Venice, CA in 2012 with a focus on artists from the greater Middle East. In 2016, Seth Curcio joined Shulamit and together they expanded the gallery's focus to include emerging, mid-career, and established artists whose interests challenge and illuminate current social and political issues through a lens of personal narrative. In 2017, the gallery relocated to its current building in Hollywood, located on La Brea Ave at Melrose Ave.
The 6,000 square-foot facility spans two floors, featuring two exhibition spaces, a library, private offices and dedicated viewing rooms. The exhibition program at Nazarian / Curcio is dedicated to supporting artists' growth and development by consistently amplifying their practice via public and private collections, museum exhibitions, and monographs. The gallery regularly participates in national and international art fairs such as Art Basel Miami Beach, Frieze Los Angeles, The Armory Show, ADAA's The Art Show, FOG Design + Art, EXPO Chicago, Dallas Art Fair, Art Brussels, and NADA NY and Miami. The gallery represents artists from the United States and abroad, with an ongoing focus on artists currently working in Los Angeles. Gallery artists have been the subjects of solo and group exhibitions in acclaimed museums throughout the world, and are held within many museum collections including California African American Museum, Los Angeles; Dallas Museum of Art; Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco; Guggenheim Museum, New York; Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, Kansas City; Los Angeles County Museum of Art; The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Mint Museum, Charlotte, NC; the Museum of Modern Art, New York; Nasher Museum at Duke University, Durham, NC; Pérez Art Museum Miami; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Seattle Art Museum; Speed Art Museum, Louisville, Kentucky; Solomon R.
