International Art Objects, formally China Art Objects, is a gallery located in Culver City, which was originally founded in Chinatown, Los Angeles.  China Art Objects was the focal point the scene in Chinatown, which escalated into an epicenter of up and coming art galleries and artist spaces/studios in LA.  Shortly after, the recession made Chinatown into a ghost town, China Art Objects moved to Culver City, and now Chinatown is gradually developing back to the vibrancy it had years before. Steve Hanson and Tuesday Yates own International Art Objects, and continue to bring viewers an amazing program of artists that span a range of art making practices and aesthetics.  Their curatorial talent shines through the exhibitions they schedule, and by following the retrospect of their programming it is interesting to see how it progressed to where it is today.  Opening tomorrow night is a group show, “Perfect” with a lineup of artists that will be hard to miss.  International Art Objects is one of the most progressive galleries in Los Angeles, featured in SFAQ’s current Issue 10, available on our website for download at:
