It took a minute to take in the passing of Chuck Berry. So many Innocnts shows have been graced with his music. An ongoing anthem of shorts for us. The original rocker! He will be missed dearly but indeed the music lives on. Here's one our favorite collective Check Berry moments.
Our main girl on the scene in Australia photographer Maddison Kellie, also known in some socialite circles as Lady Mustard, recently had a swinging exhibition in Coolangatta this past weekend with all sorts of legends in attendance. Though the California Innocnts contingent couldn't make the trip, the Aussie crew did just fine. Here's some pics from the evening. The exhibition remains up till March 11th at Maverick Hair And Art Space, First Floor, 1/17 Griffith Street, Coolangatta QLD 4225, Australia
Some things we're currently listening to.
Longtime Innocnts advocate Bryan Yazzie recently had a killer opening at Space 15 Twenty. Bryan has worked for Urban Outfitters for some years now as a hired assassin display artist. Basically all the UO special projects her in Los Angeles are built by Bryan. They hooked him up with the exhibition space at the Hollywood location and set him loose. What ensued was great use of the space utilizing a hand-welded LED light based installation that when synced with the proper band (Terminal A) and fog machine, created quite the emotive environment. The exhibit, which also includes other goods handmade by Bryan, remains up for another couple weeks with very random hours.
We made a pretty rad zine for the LA Art Book Fair a few weeks back. Nothing too fancy just a mix of art images and photos from the crew. Here's a few images from the zine. Have a few copies left still priced at $10 each.
Rumor has it we've made an Innocnts zine with @lady.mustard, @jupescoops, @sabinasauce, @sucks.4u, @bryan_peterson_, and more. We could only afford to make like 10 so perhaps you will be one of the few to get one this weekend at Printed Matter's LA Art Book Fair. Much appreciation to @newimageart for inviting us!
We came, we loved, we conquered. This past Saint Valentine's Day we curated a group exhibition of emotive art from some of our favorite people. It was a last minute show only confirmed just days prior to it's opening and hung the day of. And as ephemeral as LA graffiti, it was gone the next day. Just a one night exhibition graciously hosted by Shepard Fairey's gallery Subliminal Projects in Echo Park, California. Many thanks to our dudes Alf Alpha and Kapeesh for providing the timely sonic vibes. Much appreciation to Pabst Blue Ribbon for always supporting our shows. And huge shout to all that could make the opening and support what we do. It was an exceptional night even though all of us went home alone. Till next time!
We were drunk and busy so we didn't take many pictures sorry.
Please join us for a special one night group show presented by INNOCNTS. We will be taking over Subliminal Projects on Valentine’s night to bring you a grouping of emotive works by some of our favorite people. Enjoy some complimentary PBR's as you listen to a romantic sound selection by Alf Alpha with a special Hip-Hop set by Kapeesh.
