Event Description

On Saturday, July 15, Downtown Los Angeles’ Corey Helford Gallery (CHG) will proudly unveil their next major group exhibition, entitled “Defying Gravity: Humans and Other Objects in Mid-Air,” in Gallery 1.

The term “mid-air” conjures up multiple images. Things that are falling, things that are going up, things that are just suspended – in mid-air. From the beginning of humankind’s fascination with the sky, we have been putting everything from people to every object imaginable into mid-air.

CHG is proud to present “Defying Gravity,” an exploration of humans and objects in flight, float or free-fall by fifteen of the top artists in the New Contemporary art movement. This group exhibition continues CHG’s series of “the subjective eye,” asking artists to give their individual interpretation of a specific theme to give the viewers an emotional 360 degrees of experience on provocative subjects, explorations of the senses, or aspects of our earthly environment. “Defying Gravity” participants include Hush, Camille Rose Garcia, Chie Yoshii, Chloe Early, Jasmine Becket-Griffith, Elizabeth McGrath, Eric Joyner, Kazuki Takamatsu, Korin Faught, Miho Hirano, Nigel Cox, Scott Musgrove, Sylvia Ji, The London Police and Tom Bagshaw. The results are powerful, freeing and beautifully devoid of the binding forces of our ever-spinning globe.

The opening reception for “Defying Gravity” will be hosted Saturday, July 15 from 6-11pm in Gallery 1 at Corey Helford Gallery. The reception is open to the public and on view through August 12.

About Corey Helford Gallery:
Corey Helford Gallery (CHG) was first established in 2006 by Jan Corey Helford and her husband, television producer and creator, Bruce Helford (Anger Management, The Drew Carey Show, George Lopez, The Oblongs) and has since evolved into one of the premier galleries of New Contemporary art. Its goals as an institution are the support and growth of young and emerging, to well-known and internationally established artists, the production and promotion of their artwork, and the general production of their exhibits, events and projects.

CHG represents a diverse collection of international artists, primarily influenced by today’s pop culture and collectively encompassing style genres such as New Figurative Art, Pop Surrealism, Neo Pop, Graffiti and Street Art, and Post-Graffiti.

After nine years in Culver City, CHG relocated in December 2015 to a robust 12,000 sq. ft. building in Downtown Los Angeles, seven times larger than its original space, where it continues to host exhibitions within the heart of the city’s art community. The current space boasts three separate galleries, each of which house individual artist and group exhibitions, whereas the main gallery offers 4,500 sq. ft., providing total immersion for its attendees. New exhibitions are presented approximately every four weeks. For more info and an upcoming exhibition schedule, visit
