The folks behind Modern Art Etc. want to bring artists who have had critical and commercial success abroad to an American audience. Based in LA but operating as a web-only gallery, Modern Art Etc. is ideal for the burgeoning collector who has a few hundred bucks to drop on a rising name in the art world.
Open date: Modern Art Etc gallery was launched at the end of November 2012.
Inspiration for opening: Modern Art Etc gallery's mission is to showcase artists who are winning international awards or are very collectible/established in their home countries (in the US or elsewhere), who are not yet well known in the US. For example, we are showcasing a young Chinese sculptor Xie Ai Ge who is critically recognized in Asia and Europe and is starting to be collected in the US. Her sculptures are highly sought after and collected and likely to gain more recognition in the US. We also represent several award winning US photographers where we exclusively showcase their award winning prints.

Founded and incorporated in Los Angeles, California, Modern Art Etc. is dedicated to representing emerging and established artists within two main artistic focuses - contemporary photography and art. We represent a range of international artists, many of whom have received some of the world's most prestigious international awards. In many cases the artists share an experimental, conceptual approach to photography or art as a means of artistic expression, or are recognized for their artistic vision and technique.
