Innocnts At OPABF

Very stoked to be a exhibiting at the first annual #OPaBf (Other Place Art Book Fair), an art fair within an art fair at the Independent Artbook Fair. Does that sound confusing? Ya it probably should so here’s the breakdown.

The Other Place Art Fair is fluid in definition, bonded by an intention to operate in other places outside the traditional art gallery systems, Other Places art fair (OPaf) features participants presenting site-specific booths encapsulating their projects and programming. Representing the growing movement of hard to define art project spaces, OPaf provides a custom art fair structure designed specifically for these unconventional projects.

OPaF has a booth at this year’s Independent Artbook Fair and within this event they have created a scaled down art fair (1:12 scale to be exact) with machete set up. There are 10 booths / exhibitors in total with each project being allotted a 10 inch by 10 inch booth. It is up to each exhibitor to curate that space as desired.

Innocnts will be highlighting 3 distinct Los Angeles artists with narrative based work including Sickid, Coulter Jacobs, and Jose Araujo. Each artist has made a limited number of works specific to the project and will be highlighted during the run of the fair(s).

RECAP // JOHANNA OLK LA TATTOO DAY

While in Los Angeles for her solo exhibition // IDLE YOUTH // Johanna was able to fit in some tattoo appointments. All work was done with stick & poke method and very limited due to time and availability. Johanna set up shop in the gallery space over the weekend and managed to get about 10 tattoos done in all. Thanks to all that came out and got some ink and many thanks to Justin Gaar for taking pics.

 Innocnts returns to Shepard Fairey’s Subliminal Projects in Echo Park to curate the second edition of WE ARE THE ROMANTIC ONES, a Saint Valentine’s Day group exhibition including emotive driven painting, photography, drawing, sculpture, and installation. Last year’s one-night-only exhibition was greeted by warm crowds and goods vibes. A collection of long stem roses was available to any gal in attendance and Innocnts bootlegged some red wine from a Trader Joe’s truck to set the mood right. It was such a successful night that Subliminal Projects offered Innocnts another go this year. This time around the exhibition will run for 3 weeks from February 14th through March 3rd. The opening reception on Saint Valentine’s Night will include a special intimate Hip-Hop performance about a girlfriend by Kapeesh and select oldies vinyl by Jordan Blackmon (Toro Y Moi guitarist). Join us at Subliminal Projects Wednesday, February 14th from 7pm to 10pm as we kick off the opening reception.

NEW WORK : OHAD SARFATY

Ohad used to wrench on his van and print our shirts in LA some years back. But that was never really all he was about. Sure his dog Beans rules the Instagram but Ohad is more than just a wrencher with a cool dog. Dude can paint far better than most so it was no surprise RISD excepted him into their MFA program a year ago. He's been doing the East Coast thing since but judging by his new work, the experience is serving him well. Have a look below.

Innocnts x Globe // Recap Video

A nice little recap video from our Innocnts x Globe party at General Admission in Venice a few weeks back. A nice look at the crowd and vibes from another successful Innocnts gathering. Good thing our friend Ryan Hackbarth videoed the evening cause we were too busy drinking the free King Harbor beer on tap. Ryan mixed the video up with tunes by DIVOLA or played so well the opening night that the cops decided to show up.
