Isha Welsh joins Blum & Poe as Director
Blum & Poe is pleased to announce that Isha Welsh is joining the gallery as a Director. Based in the gallery’s Los Angeles headquarters, Welsh will work closely with the Blum & Poe international team.
On this new chapter, Welsh notes, “I'm excited to be joining the team at Blum & Poe. I’ve followed the program over the years and have always admired the ambitious exhibitions and dedication to the artists it represents. With spaces in New York, Tokyo, and Los Angeles I think it’s an exciting moment to continue to build on the gallery’s expansive approach and to work with the amazing group of artists in the program."
Welsh will work closely with a number of artists, will focus on client and institutional relations, and will develop primary market sales strategy.
Gallery co-founder Tim Blum says, “We’re excited to move into this new phase of the gallery with 2020 onwards—new artist relationships, new projects globally, new performance and publishing initiatives—Isha’s presence, interests, and strengths contribute to this expanded vision and new growth.”
Previously Welsh was a director at Regen Projects from 2015 to 2019 where he worked with several artists from the program, as well as important collectors and institutions internationally. Prior to that he was a director at Los Angeles gallery 1301PE. Welsh lived in New Zealand before moving to Los Angeles and holds a BA and MA (Hons) from the University of Auckland.
