Who We Are
HOUSE OF L is presenting an exciting new platform for art experiences, providing a voice for emerging artists and disrupting the way collectors and enthusiasts experience and buy art. We are introducing emerging artists to the world by giving them a platform to expose themselves alongside blue chip artists. We provide a safe space for emerging artists, helping them establish value and navigate the art world. Throughout our events, we not only present commercial art, we are also bringing together industry professionals, educational programming, conceptual art performance and immersive installation to touch on all aspects of the art experience. We are creating an inclusive environment where everyone can have a personal experience with art.
