This distinctive art company is dedicated to enhancing the contemporary art experience for artists, collectors and viewers in and outside the gallery setting. Dab Art embraces the relentless evolution of contemporary art by featuring experimental artists, highlighting innovative techniques and utilizing technological advances. In 2011 Yessíca Torres de Marín co-opened H Gallery + Studios in Ventura, California. As co-owner and chief curator of H Gallery, Yessíca’s contemporary and modern program was a clear break from the conventional art scene that surrounded her. Keeping focused on emerging and mid-career artists, H Gallery’s progressive gallery design and ambitious exhibition schedule were received with immediate regional success. Yessíca still owns H Gallery, which is now one of the most prevailing contemporary art spaces in the greater Los Angeles area. With the revelation that art exposure should not be limited by physical location, Yessíca independently established Dab Art in 2014. Mainly focusing on mid-career to established artists, Dab Art’s current inventory of international artwork is available for purchase online. Our partnership with Arsty has greatly expanded our collector visibility, elevating the Dab Art sales experience.

Sumac Space was founded in 2020 as a non-profit platform presenting contemporary art from the Middle East through digital programs, critical writing and research. Devoted to the Middle East and its thriving contemporary art, we work with artists and curators, who address contemporary urgencies in the context of the challenging social and political circumstances of the region. Seeking new ways of experiencing art through digital modalities, Sumac Space experiments with rethinking the existing forms of art presentation and looks for meaningful uses of digital communication to meet, to relate, to be together. By experimenting with different methods, we search for ways to stimulate subjective imagination and critical relation against the currents of the attention economy and incessant excess of digital representation. Alongside exploring our programs, such as digital Exhibitions, Sumac Space invites viewers to explore Artists’ Rooms and Dialogues. Artists’ Rooms are digital architectures curated entirely by artists themselves that are here to allow for connecting with the artists’ thinking process and research, beyond actual artworks. We believe that art practice is so much more than final works and therefore our aim is to disclose what is formative and proliferates artists’ practice on different levels. If Artists’ Rooms is primarily […]
