purple ART FOR ALL

Curator: Olivier Zahm
Installer and Documentarian: Johnny Le


Johnny Le is a multimedia documentarian, curator, and editor. He is living and working in Los Angeles, New York City, and Portland, OR.

His multimedia documentarian practice captures an ongoing photography montage creating in-between sceneries and portraiture, imbuing a relational candidness with unknown-to-established artists, musicians, and icons. Le extends the photographic rapport formed with his subjects through an experimental curatorial practice, where he builds upon collaboration to present thematic art exhibitions and cultural programming bridging the divergent communities of the art world, entertainment, fashion, gastronomy, music, and the use of unorthodox exhibition spaces.

In 2013 Le founded Galerie Hideout, a migratory gallery exploring the ephemeral ethos of curiosity, chance encounters, and travel. He has curated and organized Galerie Hideout exhibitions in Portland, Los Angeles, and Paris.

He is a contributing editor of Highsnobiety Magazine and editor-at-large for Purple Fashion Magazine. He photographed and has written stories about art, culture, and design in Asia, Europe, and the US.
