Fireworks and Mezcal With LAND

It’s always a good sign when you sell the art before the gallery doors have opened.

Despite FedEx’s best efforts, LAND’s new collection of works, Peace Flags, made its way from Austin to LA for a huge opening night at 1700 Naud. While the temperatures soared, Madre Mezcal, Obvious Wines, PBR, and Topo Chico kept everyone cool, and the best pizza in town (Pizzanista!) provided valuable carbs to the Chances With Wolves dancefloor. LAND’s new work branches out into a new and surprising realm of colour and materials—an interesting aesthetic shift for the Texan collective. To top the night off, we put on a display of fireworks that definitely had nothing to do with the two music festivals occurring simultaneously around the perimeter of 1700 Naud.

Peace Flags will be on view July 29th – Aug 9th (excluding weekends) from 1 to 5 pm.
