Los Angeles-based artists Bijou Karman, Vivian Shih and Juliette Toma celebrate their city through a series of unique explorations into the strange and mundane. See more images from “The LAnd Around Us” below or on display at co-LAb Gallery March 18 – April 23.
Artist Jennifer Bolande uses billboards to advertise the very thing they so often distract us from. Set up between the Gene Autry Trail and Vista Chino in California, the installation not only draws drivers’ attention back to the natural landscape, in some instances the photos line up seamlessly with the real-life background. See more images from “Visible Distance / Second Sight” below or on display as part of Desert X until April 30.
Los Angeles-based photographer Coley Brown explores the transitional moment when darkness overtakes light in his latest book “Deeper Than Night.” Published by his own press, Silent Sound, and featuring a poetic introduction by fellow photographer Nicholas Hance McElroy, see more images from the meditative series below.
Musician Anna Bulbrook (The Bulls, Airborne Toxic Event, and Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros) recently launched GIRLSCHOOL, a Los Angeles-based music festival and collective that celebrates female voices. A portion of proceeds from each event go to a girl-positive organization, and this year’s festival (Jan 27-29) will support Rock n’ Roll Camp for Girls LA, a 501c3 social justice organization using loud music to nurture self-esteem and self-expression in young girls.
Society6 has joined forces with GIRLSCHOOL to pair up musicians and artists to create visuals inspired by the music, to be displayed at the event. See a few more of the collaborations below!
