This weekend, it’s time to cash in on that promise you made to yourself to see more art this summer. We’ve rounded up three exhibits by each of our stores in New York City, San Francisco, and Los Angeles to get you started.
NEW YORK CITY:BROOKLYN MUSEUM | FAILE: Savage/Sacred Young Minds
WHO: Brooklyn-based duo Patrick McNeil and Patrick Miller.
WHAT: This collaboration includes multi-media installations, huge paintings, and sculptures that blend together elements from fine art, street art, and popular culture. The exhibit, which intends to raise questions about our relationship to consumer culture, religious traditions, and the urban environment, also includes an interactive arcade (pictured above), where the video games/pinball machines/foosball tables function as both sculptures and playable games.
WHERE: 200 Eastern Pkwy, Brooklyn, NY 11238. (Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Gallery, 5th Floor.)
WHEN: Launched earlier this summer in July, the exhibit runs until October 4th.
SAN FRANCISCO: INCLINE GALLERY | Recursions by Tressa Pack
WHO: Tressa Pack, conceptual photographer based in Oakland, CA.
WHAT: Exploring the connection between ourselves and the form that our technology takes, Pack photographs everything from robots used to perform tests at MIT’s Artificial Intelligence Lab to the code that reflects the robots’ feedback when asked to perform simple tasks in her solo exhibition at Incline Gallery.
WHEN: Recursions just opened last week and runs until September 20th.
LOS ANGELES: C.A.V.E. GALLERY | Bloom by Young Chun
WHO: Young Chun, a South Korean artist famous for his elaborate, hyper-realistic oil paintings of “muses with brilliant, chromatic glasses.”
WHAT: Bloom, Chun’s fourth exhibit at the C.A.V.E. Gallery, which features pop art, photos, and audio installations by up and coming artists.
WHERE: 1108 Abbot Kinney Blvd. Venice, CA 90291. (P.S. – it’s right across the street from our Classic Specs shop in Junk Food.)
