Chimento Contemporary announced last week that it will be departing Boyle Heights, the Los Angeles neighborhood where local groups have mounted a fervent campaign to push out galleries they argue will spur on gentrification and drive up rent for working-class residents. Hyperallergic reported that Chimento, which will close June 16, was one of the galleries targeted for a boycott by the groups Defend Boyle Heights and the Boyle Heights Alliance Against Artwashing and Displacement, but the space’s owner said she was leaving for other reasons. “I needed a storefront I could afford,” Eva Chimento told Hyperallergic. “I also don’t live downtown or anywhere near there, so it was difficult to get in and out. I wanted to do it a bit smarter this time.” Two other galleries in the contested neighborhood—UTA Artist Space, and Museum as Retail Space—will close or relocate.
