Eighth Veil is a new contemporary art exhibition and publishing house located in Hollywood, California. Eighth Veil will provide artists with residencies to develop and oversee the creation of printed matter, as well as host a rotation of exhibitions and events.
Eighth Veil is housed in an original 1920’s Art Deco storefront on Sunset Blvd. Prior to becoming an exhibition space, 7174 Sunset housed offset lithographic presses for neighboring Paper Chase Printing. Eighth Veil will utilize its proximity to Paper Chase to give artists the opportunity to create printed works. The nature of the works will be determined entirely by the artist rather than by an overarching theme. Artists will be provided with studio space on the premises in which they can conceptualize these works and closely oversee their production. This opportunity will be extended to artists exhibiting with Eighth Veil as well as individuals chosen by the gallery, commissioning printed matter on a per project basis.
Eighth Veil aims to develop close relationships with artists and provide more visibility to their process. Allowing creativity beyond their normal medium and into print.
