LMAKprojects was founded by Louky Keijsers Koning in 2005, and renamed LMAKgallery in 2015. The galleries interest lies in dedication to support the development of artists’ careers and to broaden the span of their visual domain. LMAKgallery is known for its exhibitions with international allure, focusing on inter-disciplinary practices, creating interactive situations and collaborative ventures.
LMAKprojects started its operation with two spaces: one in Chelsea (main gallery space) and one in Williamsburg (project space) which focused on events like lectures, performances and screenings. The exchange allowed for a very vivid atmosphere and a hybrid program that brought artists and collectors together.
In October of 2008 LMAKprojects relocated their Chelsea-space to the new gallery area in the Lower East Side (LES). In 2015 LMAKgallery expanded to a new building on 298 Grand Street, which allows for an expansion in programming and their new division of LMAKbooks+design; a platform for functional art and books.
Bart Keijsers Koning became a co-owner of the gallery in 2009.
LMAKgallery presents works in all media, ranging from drawing, painting, photography, video/film and sculpture by artists from all over the world.
