Episode 51 / VOICES ON ART – The VAN HORN Gallery Podcast / Encouraging people to look | BRIAN BUTLER, Founder and Owner of 1301PE, Los Angeles
Recorded January 14, 2022, 52 Min., Language english


We’re staying in Los Angeles. Brian Butler’s gallery 1301PE will be celebrating it’s 30th anniversary this year, so we are covering a lot – from his early beginnings, coming from an artist’s family to his studies, travelling the world, working in Germany, founding Brain Multiples and later 1301, which turned into 1301PE, then leaving the US to lead an institution in New Zealand, coming back and lots and lots in between. He talks about how he found the artists he worked with over the years – from Angela Bulloch and Jorge Pardo to Jessica Stockholder and Pae White to Rirkrit Tiravanija – to name just a few. Brian always cared about encouraging people to take their time and taking a deeper look at art, to have the patience to let art’s impact unfold. In the second half of our conversation Brian reveils a lot about his thoughts on art fairs, the art world in general and his personal way how to stay fluid, creative and in tune with his own compass.
