Los Angeles Warehouse Transformed into a 150,000 Square Foot Art Exhibition

British artist Simon Birch and a team of 20 collaborators have constructed an elaborate series of interconnected installations in a vacant warehouse on the outskirts of downtown Los Angeles. Covering 3 acres of space with a mix of sculpture, video, paintings and performance pieces, the exhibition is a direct response to the current political climate. A celebration of creativity, diversity and unity, Birch explains: “Given the current fragile state of the world, we need unity more than ever… and we need action.”

While encouraging positivity, possibility and a safe space for people to come together, The 14th Factory is exactly that — a call to action that doesn’t shy away from provoking a response (or at least an Instagram photo). One installation is an exact replica of the iconic room from 2001: A Space Odyssey, while another is filled with 300 pitchforks hanging from the ceiling above the guests!

Check out more images from the project below or on display at 440 N. Ave 19 Los Angeles, California until May 31.

Vancouver-Based OURO Collective Present “Tangent”

Last week we shot some rehearsal footage of our friends, Vancouver-based dance collective OURO, as they prepared for their first full-length show, “Tangent”. The group has spent the past year exploring movements from each member’s diverse dance background to create a story. Their unique voice is a combination of street and contemporary dance twisted into a language all its own.

For this show they’ve also collaborated with Vancouver artist Kutcorners to create original music inspired by their movements. You can listen to Tangent HERE or on iTunes and it’ll be released on Spotify shortly!

We are proud to be a media partner for OURO’s two performances this week at Orpheum’s Annex theatre (May 25th/26th). If you live in Vancouver come check it out! Their work is fun, accessible and inspiring, regardless of your knowledge of dance. There are only two performances and tickets are going fast (previous shows on Granville Island sold out completely).

Tickets: Get your tickets HERE.
