Founded in 2009, Durden and Ray is comprised of 25 artist/curators who work together to create exhibition opportunities at their downtown Los Angeles gallery as well as in concert with artist groups and gallery spaces around the world. Durden and Ray concentrates on small, tightly curated group shows at the gallery, organized by the members, and hosts international artists as part of a commitment to global exchange and alternative networks. The Durden and Ray model expressly overlaps multiple strategies, including the commercial potential and visual identity of a gallery, the democratic structure of an artist group, the potential to create collaborative works of art in the manner of a collective, and the shared fiscal support of its programs by group members and project partners similar to a nonprofit organization. Durden and Ray is committed both to individual praxis and to shared aims of curatorial experimentation, visual research, and artistic exchange with international partners.

Durden and Ray will present a selection of works from our diverse membership to reflect our group’s ‘persona' to fellow exhibitors, to encourage an open and direct dialogue which we hope will lead to future exchanges and collaborations with our international peers also exhibiting at Supermarket. We view Supermarket as an opportunity to introduce ourselves to our future partners.
