One And J. Gallery Draw L.A. Art Crowd To Pierre Koenig House In The Hills

by Emily Green · April 15, 2010

Last night in the hills, One and J. Gallery hosted an opening reception for their exhibition of Korean and Japanese contemporary art. The party was way, way up Lookout Mountain where guests were greeted by valets wearing all white in front of the Pierre Koenig Case Study House #21. The architectural marvel housed the exhibition's pieces and installations, both inside and outside.

A chic crowd of artsy Angelenos and fierce Asians enjoyed a night of cocktails, appetizers and schmoozing throughout the famous California property, which is owned by the Seoul-based One and J. Gallery.  The turn out was great and the guests seemed to be enjoying the open bar, so much so that it ran out of beverages pretty early in the night. Thankfully, someone was sent out on an emergency alcohol run to pick up more, giving guests even more incentive to stick around until it arrived while a DJ spun some disco. Meanwhile, MJ Kim, Sir Paul McCartney's personal photographer, mingled with guests and snapped their photo. As a finishing touch to the evening, guests were gifted with white roses by the valet as they hopped back in their cars to head back down the mountain.

It was a truly unique exhibition and is only in town for limited time so make an appointment for your chance to check it out.  It will be open from today through Sunday, April 18th, noon-4pm. To schedule an appointment, send an email to
