Rick Royale
Owner at Royale Projects


Royale Projects, established in 2008, focuses on the history and continuing advancement of abstraction in painting and sculpture, as well as on leading edge artists who find their roots in Conceptualism. Royale Projects maintains a rigorous schedule of solo and group exhibitions as well as site-responsive projects. The gallery debuted works by Helen Pashgian, one of the innovators of the California Light & Space movement, and had the honor of presenting the last new works by Dennis Oppenheim. Royale Projects collaborated with Andrea Zittel's High Desert Test Sites to produce ‘Trajectory Object c. 2000-2050’ and the accompanying artist book by Karen Lofgren, as well as the career- defining project ‘Lucid Stead’ by Phillip K. Smith III, both in Joshua Tree, California. The downtown Los Angeles Arts District space opened with a survey exhibition of Ken Lum and was a participating gallery in The Getty’s ‘Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA’, exhibiting new work by Ruben Ortiz Torres. The gallery debuted previously unseen works from the 1960s from the Estate of Clinton Hill (1922–2003), a lesser known member of the New York School, at Frieze Art Fair in New York, contributing to the reappraisal of the artist as an important voice in American abstraction.
