At the Spring 2013 Beverly Hills artSHOW Coagula Curatorial presented the work of three edgy artists at a guest gallery curated by Mat Gleason on the corner of Cañon Drive and Santa Monica Boulevard.

  • Antonio Mendoza is an expressionistic collage artist who creates vibrant abstractions that are simultaneously rugged and delicate.
  • Stephanie Mercado combines the labor of the seamstress with the Rococo period outerwear as a commentary on the pleasures of excess.
  • Matthew Weinberg combines the sophistication of the Pop artist and the daring of the delinquent as he draws and paints KISS characters on real money.

To celebrate twenty years of publishing Coagula Art Journal, acclaimed editor, art critic and curator Mat Gleason opened Coagula Curatorial as a premiere exhibition space of contemporary art. Coagula Curatorial is located in the historic Chung King Road of contemporary art galleries in Downtown L.A.'s Chinatown. Coagula Art Journal was first published in April, 1992, brainchild of Los Angeles writer Mat Gleason. The bimonthly print journal quickly gained notoriety as a no-holds critique of contemporary art and the art world. Championing Los Angeles and mocking New York when the notion of the Big Apple playing second fiddle to "LaLa Land" was considered delusional, the art world as it exists now was envisioned as obvious on the pages of Coagula a generation ago. With over 100 published issues, it is the autonomous companion to the rise of the Los Angeles art scene. The publication continues now as a regular catalogue of Coagula Curatorial shows with Gleason helming publisher and curator duties.
