Since its inception Durden and Ray has endeavored to become an agent to new and shifting perspectives, re-contextualizing contemporary art by challenging traditional modes of creating, exhibiting and receiving art. Acting as a nexus for collaborative projects between artists, curators, galleries and the public at large, D&R unlocks the "white box", supplanting the exclusive gallery structure with an open exchange of ideas and resources. Its initiatives span a a plurality of research interests, creating new exhibition opportunities for the independent art community here in Los Angeles, and helping to bring art communities from different continents into a common dialog. In its first year Durden and Ray has marshaled exhibitions in Los Angeles,  San Diego and Tokyo while continuing to be a powerful presence in the art scene. Come see what all the buzz is about in this ONE NIGHT, TWO VENUE exhibition.
