A note from the GIBSMIR-Family

We are the GIBSMIR-Family and would like to invite you to swap your art (not bigger than 12×12 inch) with a Swiss artist at the Collective Art Show, L.A. You can see all the works online at www.gibs-mir.at/la.html.

GIBSMIR-Family at Collective Show Los Angeles 2011

The idea behind the project, Tree Structure, is to present on a table at Collective Show, L.A. small-scale work by Swiss artists. Artists converging in Los Angeles are invited to swap their work with work set out by others. To continue the game, participants can exchange repeatedly, replacing new works on the table. Every substitution will be registered with the respective artist’s name/work/website, which can be tracked in real-time on the website www.gibs-mit.at. Visit us at Collective Show Los Angeles 2011 on Saturday, January 29, 12-6pm to swap your work with work on our table.

We are looking forward to seeing you there.
The GIBSMIR-Family, Veronika Spierenburg, Urs August Steiner, Marcel Reimer

ART 2102 Book: Dispatches and Directions: On artist-run organizations in Los Angeles

New book from ART 2102: Dispatches and Directions: On artist-run organizations in Los Angeles

From the ART 2102 Website:
“Over the past several years ART2102 has acted as a platform for artists and curators in Los Angeles to realize their projects and exhibitions. From its space in Boyle Heights, ART2102 hosted a vibrant program known for its open cultural discourse and flexibility of ideas, and for engaging both local and international artists at various stages in their careers. Gradually, ART2102 moved away from this physical site as its programming and initiatives engaged with the large network of other artists-run spaces across Los Angeles and Southern California.

Tussie Mussie

Tussie Mussie Invite

Charming, varietal, capricious, distinctive—all are descriptors of both the petite Victorian floral arrangement, as well as Collective Show’s New York evening and fundraiser.  Presented by Silvershed, the event featured jazz music by Sammy Miller and the Congregation, an array of various patés by Les Trois Petits Cochons, and a backroom bar by Café Select. Allocating each wall to a different curatorial undertaking, the space presented three visual arrangements by Cecelia+Helene, Ronnie Kimm, and Collective Show itself. All of the works on display were available for purchase. Each of the individual Tussie Mussie contributions stood independently while also allowing for a collective viewing experience.
