‘Outside, Looking In’ at C.A.V.E. Gallery
-By Lauren Lloyd/Special to LAist
As the sole gallery in Venice showcasing the new contemporary art movement, C.A.V.E. Gallery’s upcoming show, Outside, Looking In, is a fantastical new collection of this daedal technique. Featuring three prolific multidisciplinary artists - Macsorro (Los Angeles), Patrick Gannon (Tokyo) and Shay Davis (San Diego), the show’s opening reception is tonight, Feb. 11, from 7-10pm. Macsorro and Davis will be present.
Bobbing to the beats courtesy of three prominent DJs - DJ Trek Lewis, DJ BusRider and DJ Mr. NumberOnederful - attendees will experience a synthesis of hyper-stylized paintings and hand cut paper collage, plus an installation by Gannon. A live painter is featured at every opening reception, and John Park will be at easel tonight. “He’s really fun to watch because he’s fast and his paintings unfold in a short period of time,” says Patrick Iaconis, Co-owner of C.A.V.E. This mixture of visuals and sound adheres to the gallery’s name, which is an acronym for Center for Audio and Visual Expression.
