It’s been a while since I’ve been to an art gallery, and possibly been forever since we’ve posted some art exhibit events that are taking place anywhere in your city, state, country, etc. I am an avid fan of art, and it’s crazy that I haven’t posted anything in relation to it on here. You can check out my pictures from the Adidas Originals x Snoop Dogg exhibit from a couple of years back at the HVW8 Art Gallery.
HVW8 has been one of the most exclusive — yet low-key art galleries known across the Southland — garners TONS of people flocking to their headquarters just about every exhibit they put together. It’s usually packed, and you have people from all walks of life making their way to the gallery, which is located on the West side of Los Angeles.
Starting tomorrow, the HVW8 Art Gallery will be having an exhibit by Alessandro Moroder and Erin Garcia. These two artists will be showcasing their art and mural, which you will be able to see if you RSVP. Details about their art will be down below the pictures. Make sure you RSVP at [email protected] Exhibit is from 8-10pm.
Alessandro Moroder’s work examines the masculine psyche through the notion of the spectacle by exploring it within various lenses, languages, and time periods. In New Neons, Moroder explores the idea of masculinity and memory through text, light and space. The attraction of working with neon came from a custom sign his father built in the 80’s and was then hung and lit in their apartment. From an early age, Moroder saw the same blue wave image daily and was amazed not only by the relationship that the sign had with the room, but also how light and space played an equal role in the work – and in his memory. This show, consisting of custom neon signs investigates the role of notable text and typography, but by also constructing a mirrored triangle sculpture in the center of the gallery space, creates an alternate conversation among the three signs, all different in color, text, and language.
Erin Garcia is a visual artist based in Los Angeles. Originally from the Deep South, he and his work have both taken a long migratory path with many twists and turns along the way. Garcia’s current work is an exploration of where the human capacity for abstraction intersects or conflicts with the sensory desire for specificity. Each one of his drawings or paintings is part of a process of distillation, and there is a distinct feeling when taken together as a series that they are driving ever closer to a revelatory moment. The process of the work is exceedingly present, the pieces are inextricable from the practice of their generation.
