Imprint joined forces with Kenya Hara’s Hara Design Institute / Nippon Design Center to realize Hara’s vision of re-imagining architecture for dogs (rather than making them use things designed for humans). The Architecture for Dogs exhibition was unveiled during Art Basel / Design Miami last year, to much critical acclaim. The Miami Herald even short-listed the exhibition as one of the top 5 things to see during the festival. Now this thought-provoking collection of creations from some of the world’s top architects has made its way to Long Beach, and is set to open to the public at Long Beach Museum of Art this Friday.
Bi-coastal clothing label CX.CITY have this cool content stream called Creative Minds, Creative Spaces, which is “a look inside the minds of modern creatives” and they just featured the super talented homie Benjie Escobar, alongside one of the best photos of Benjie ever. It’s actually a great read too. Radness.
Faces is a zine by two LA-based photographers, Michael R. Dueñas (interviewed) and Charlie Coatney. Coatney was a pro skater in the ’90s and then moved into art and photography. The two have teamed up to take half of the book each, from opposite sides, so each gets a front cover of their own. It deftly captures some of the elusive spirit of Los Angeles. [View Photos]
I just posted a brand new interview with super talented SF-based artist Hannah Stouffer, over on the Imprint Culture Lab website. It has nice pictures. Also, on a related note, see you at The Standard this evening.
Here’s the flyer for the Hannah Stouffer party at The Standard hotel in DTLA next Monday evening. 8pm.
