Scion Video installation event
This past Saturday, Scion had a Video Installation event at its pop-up gallery in Culver City. One of my classmates who went to Art Center the same time I did had a stop-motion piece in the show. The open bar drew a long line, and it was definitely a see and be seen kind of art hipster crowd, with fedoras galore. The previous Scion event Papershapers was at the same location, and it's great to see that Scion is supporting the underground arts scene in L.A. Interestingly enough, one of Scion's giveaways was an art publication featuring different creatives, including Robert Berman, an art curator and gallery owner in Santa Monica. He evidently was influential in helping Retna get exposure to the L.A. art scene, and Retna had done a piece on the side of the building where I did my last live painting, at Day Dream Republic.
