In 1973, the U.S. faced a major economic crisis when OPEC proclaimed an embargo of petroleum to this country and the stock market plummeted at a rate unseen since the Great Depression. The same year musician and club owner Hilli Kristal opened CBGB , the legendary music club that spawned the careers of musical artists such as the Ramones, Talking Heads, New York Dolls, Patti Smith, and Blondie. The economic downturn of the 70s did not prevent the aforementioned musical artists from creating work of lasting influence. In fact, some of the best cultural products of the 20th century in almost every creative genre emerged during that period.
Based on the assumption that art thrives in economically challenged times, JAUS opens its door to the public and provides a modestly scaled (+600 sq. ft.) yet striking exhibition space whose long term operation is totally non-dependent on sales or funding. We have no set parameters on the type of work to be exhibited, and whatever parameter we might have is highly subject to change. We are, however, most interested in artists without gallery representation in L.A. whose work can get people talking.
