Working closely with art collector and real estate developer Charles S. Cohen, Helen Varola engages artists to create exhibitions and site-specific artworks at the landmark Pacific Design Center, West Hollywood since 2009.


The Pacific Design Center explores design through artistic practice with the aim of supporting Los Angeles' dynamic artist community.  Exhibitions have received critical acclaim in Artforum, Art in America, Flash Art, Domus, The Art Newspaper, The New York Times, Los Angeles Times and numerous other art publications. 


Exhibition proposals are considered by invitation only. To be considered for an exhibition at the Pacific Design Center please email Helen Varola with a brief description of your project.
