In 2012 Oscar Florit opened the space ‘Louis 21′ in Palma de Mallorca with the objective of representing emerging artists. Our project consists in creating new exhibition and collaborative formats, fomenting the interaction between artists, galleries and our audience.
Actively involved in the production of artworks, solo exhibitions and curated projects, the gallery’s intentions are to boost artists onto the national and international contemporary art stage. Our gallery supports investigation and experimentation with a program open to collaboration and site specific projects, aspiring to create new synergies between artists, collectors, curators and public.
In April 2013, L21 opened a new space in Madrid with the same spirit and strategy but geared towards a wider and differentiated public and critique. Additionally, along with gallery space L21 initiated a mini project: ‘The Window’ – a street facing white cube that invited 24/7, day and night viewing uninterruptedly, even from the exterior, without the necessity to enter the gallery and just by strolling down Doctor Fourquet Street.
After three years of projects in Madrid, L21 closed its space to focus on their new space in Mallorca in September 2016, which moved to a 450 square meter warehouse in the Industrial Park Son Castelló in Palma, 15 minutes from the center. Here we can host larger exhibitions and continue to play with the format, inviting major architectural interventions and large sculptural works. The gallery is divided into three different exhibition rooms: two in the main floor and one in the upper floor. L21 offers artists and curators a residency studio apartment where they can work and offers the viewers a bookshop in the reception room with a selection of publications and editions by its represented and collaborating artists.
L21 offers internships throughout the year for people based in Mallorca.
