Born October 18, 1931, Virginia Dwan opened the Dwan Gallery in 1959 in Los Angeles, California, and became an important figure in the postwar art world there. Showing the avant-garde, she viewed her gallery as an opportunity to expose the public to different art styles. In 1965, Dwan moved to New York and opened a second branch of her gallery there. She showed Abstract Expressionist artists, as well as Nouveaux Réalistes artists like Yves Klein. She later showed Land and Minimalist artists. Dwan closed the Los Angeles branch in mid-1967, but kept the New York branch open until 1971, when it closed due to economic insecurity. Help us transcribe an interview of Dwan and some of the Dwan Gallery files to illuminate her life.
