At just 29 years old, Maggie Kayne has been staking claim to LA’s illustriously enigmatic art world. Between her freshly minted 15,000 square foot gallery space with partners James Corcoran and Bill Griffin, her celebrated inaugural show with long-time pal and all-around man about town James Turrell, and her recent exhibition with demi-god David Lynch, it’s safe to say that Maggie is staying ahead of the curve. And all while barely pushing the greater part of her adult years.
Kayne Griffin Corcoran, Maggie’s exceptionally designed space on south La Brea is a soothing retreat, complete with Turrellian (patent pending) light elements, a retractable Skyspace, and various outdoor elements also designed by Turrell. A veiled treasure among the encroaching auto shops and fast food eyesores on the same stretch, the gallery might be easy to miss to the untrained eye.
I enjoy being slightly off the beaten path. I like to be a little bit removed . . . but still conveniently located.
“I enjoy being slightly off the beaten path,” Maggie says. “I like to be a little bit removed . . . but still conveniently located.”
