The Center for Audio and Visual Expression, known as C.A.V.E. Gallery, was first conceived in 2001 as a series of traveling art events showcasing visual art, film and music. Fueled by the fresh, new art scene exploding in Los Angeles, C.A.V.E. established a permanent gallery space in 2008 in Venice Beach, California. C.A.V.E. Gallery is committed to introducing and supporting cutting-edge art that is engaging – specializing in the urban contemporary art movement. The gallery presents a new exhibition each month that features a select roster of artists who are ambitious about challenging creative styles and techniques, focus on creating bold work that is skillfully executed with attention to content and detail, and with a challenging perspective on contemporary urban culture.
