In May 2011, BritWeek, in collaboration with the L.A. ART MACHINE (LAAM), will produce a landmark, large-scale, museum-quality art installation by world-renown artists MEAR ONE (USA) and D*FACE (UK). This exhibition will be the centerpiece of the entire BritWeek Contemporary Art Program and will run approximately two weeks at L.A. MART second floor exhibition hall.
Utilizing approximately 25,000 square-feet, BritWeek & LAAM will
encourage the artists to entertain an entire range of expression, employing any media that fits the artists’ concept (i.e. sculpture,
digital media, paintings, prints, performance, etc.) The overarching
theme, which may be interpreted loosely, is the U.S.-British experience and whatever that may mean to the artists.
In addition, D*FACE and MEAER ONE will commandeer chair sculpture in the parking lot of the L.A. MART as a special project piece for the artists to embellish, paint, and post. This outdoor sculpture may remain in perpetuity as a gift from BritWeek to Los Angeles and an internationally-recognized symbol of the L.A. MART.
Stay tuned for updates as the event draws near!
