In the dead of New York’s frigid winter months, a number of East Coasters are flocking West. Among them are a deluge of the city’s gallerists—David Zwirner, James Fuentes, and Morán Morán, to name a few—all of whom have inaugurated Los Angeles spaces in recent years.

The eponymous space opens today with the first solo Los Angeles exhibition of fellow New Yorker Nicole Wittenberg’s bold paintings, “Nicole Wittenberg: Jumpin' at the Woodside.”
