Event Description

LAUNCH LA’s upcoming exhibition opening on Saturday September 10th from 6-9pm features a new site-specific installation organized by Rough Play.

Without Design or Sketch: The Story of the Room approaches the context of the Whistler’s Peacock Room as a platform from which to address a series of issues related to contemporary art practices such as the boundary between art space and living space, the perceptions of decorative and fine art, the value of art and patronage, and art’s engagement with social and moral issues versus its purely visual components.

The following featured artists engage these concepts within the Launch LA Gallery space and respond to in a dynamic environmental collaboration between artists, ideas, materials, and space. Featuring work by Alex Anderson, Beatriz Cortez, Krysten Cunningham, Ashley Hagen, Carla Jay Harris, Jane Hugentober, Malisa Humphrey, Janna Ireland, Cole James, Shoshi Kanokohata and Taidgh O’Neill, Annelie McKenzie, Thinh Nguyen, Joel Otterson, Christopher Reynolds, Jackie Rines, Emily Sudd, Christian Tedeschi, Elizabeth Tinglof, Kim Truong, Axel Wilhite, Robert Wilhite, Emily Wiseman, and Kim Ye.
