Durden & Ray is comprised of artist/curators who work together to create exhibition opportunities at their Downtown Los Angles space as well as in concert with gallery spaces around the world. Durden & Ray concentrate on small, tightly curated group shows at the space, organized by the members, as well as the hosting of international artists as part of their commitment to global exchange and alternative networks. The Durden & Ray model expressly overlaps multiple strategies, including the commercial potential and visual I.D. of a gallery, the democratic structure of an artist's 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 partnering organizations similar to a non-profit.
