Annenberg Space for Photography Closes Permanently

COVID-19 pandemic forces decision

By Sam Catanzaro

Century City’s Annenberg Space for Photography has announced it will not reopen its doors after closing due to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak in March.

“I’m writing to share some news – borne out of the pandemic that has upended public institutions across the world. After closing its doors to the public in March, the Annenberg Space for Photography will not be re-opening,” Wallis Annenberg wrote. “It’s been a joy and a privilege to share my favorite art form with the Los Angeles community for these ten wonderful years. Because a great photograph does so much more than capture what’s in front of us. It captures what’s deep inside us – the trials and the triumphs the naked eye rarely sees. That’s why the Photo Space has been so meaningful to me.”

The Annenberg Space for Photography–2000 Avenue of the Stars–was founded in 2009, as a place dedicated to displaying photographic works, ranging from artistic to journalistic, using both traditional photographic prints and modern digital techniques

According to Annenberg, the public will be able to view past exhibits, archives of interviews and audio tours through social media and at annenbergphotospace.org.

“We’re going to look for new and creative ways to bring stirring art to the public in the years ahead,” Annenberg said. “For now, given the unprecedented health crisis we face, the Annenberg Foundation will continue to place its primary focus on helping to support those affected by COVID-19. In addition, we’re going to continue to expand our commitment to social and economic justice, in every way we can.”
