Brand Teams Up on New Contemporary Art Exhibit

First published in the Jan. 14 print issue of the Glendale News-Press.

Always in pursuit of uniting and elevating the New Contemporary Art community, Thinkspace Projects teams up with Tlaloc Studios and the California Cowboys Collective to present “NEXUS IV: RAIZ” at the Brand Library and Art Center.
“NEXUS IV: RAIZ” is the fourth collaboration between Brand and Thinkspace Projects, creating a platform for young and emerging artists from around the world to exhibit alongside Los Angeles-based artists working in the New Contemporary Art movement. This year, the Brand Library and Art Center welcomes a curatorial partnership with Tlaloc Studios, a community-based, artist-run space in South Central Los Angeles. The opening reception will feature live DJs, food trucks and a classic car and bike show organized by California Cowboys Collective.
With more than 60 artists, “NEXUS IV: RAIZ” presents a diverse and varied exhibit focusing on L.A.-based artists, including new work from the likes of Antonio J. Ainscough, Young-Ji Cha, Kristy Moreno, Zeye Oner, Perez Bros and Aof Smith. Solo shows from Anthony Clarkson, Ken Flewellyn, Matthew Grabelsky, Anthony Hurd and Cody Jimenez round out the gallery exhibits, filling the walls with innovative and genre-blending pieces across mediums. Site-specific murals from Brek, Love Yo Dreams and Mr. B Baby have been created in the gallery entry hallway.
The opening reception will take place on Saturday, Jan. 21, from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. with food trucks provided by Zavalas Pies, Sweet Life L.A. and Bad Jimmy’s, and displays by Cabrones Car Club, Ghetto Car Club and Bikes on The Blvd. Venice Beats will be on-site DJing, with video projections from Digital Debris, and live painting curated by GoopMassta will also be part of the opening event. The exhibit will remain on view during Brand Library and Art Center’s open hours through March 17.
