Agency goes artsy.

The new UTA Artist Space just over the bridge from Downtown Los Angeles will launch Sept. 17 with a show from "Kids" filmmaker Larry Clark. The 4,500-square-foot gallery in Boyle Heights will host creatives from the agency's roster --including artists, musicians, filmmakers, and writers--who will mount readings, performances, screenings, and large-scale exhibitions.

Clark's inaugural exhibition, in collaboration with New York's Luhring Augustine gallery, will include never-before-seen vintage photographs, drug-inspired paintings, and a photomontage, as well as a screening of his 1968 film "Tulsa."

"We are dedicated to seizing opportunities for artists," says UTA chairman Jim Berkus. "UTA Artist Space provides a place for artists to interface with the public and each other in a dynamic, supportive way."

Among the artists repped by UTA's fine-art division are Ai Weiwei, Rashid Johnson, and Judy Chicago.
