Our blogger Petra Vacková has interviewed curator Alanna Simone who curates the MIA film screening at the Armory for our new STUDIO VISIT post. The MIA series happens every fourth Friday of the month, including a screening today, February 22nd titled SAME OCEAN, at 8PM at the Armory Center in Pasadena.
Human Resources has graciously given us a portion of their space in Booth 3 at Co/Lab, the completely free art fair for artist-run and nonprofit spaces located within Art Platform Los Angeles. We will have a popup office there, and will report live about the exhibitions, performances and interview the exhibitors on the Studio Visit page of our site. As special thanks, we will be donating a portion of our proceeds to Human Resources in order to assist them with their amazing community building nonprofit arts programming. We will be selling our totes, t-shirts, and limited edition prints by the following Los Angeles artists:
We have posted an interview with The Institute of Jamais Vu, an artist-run curatorial and publishing project within a communal living space in North London. Their sixteen person board of directors is currently in transit to Los Angeles in order to participate in the Artra Curatorial Co/lab Fair at the end of this month at Barker Hanger in Santa Monica.

I am sending the desert to the sea in Copenhagen, in images of vastness and openness. The desert seems to go on forever in sand, and like the ocean, the horizon is visible all the time, the landscape stretches out in all directions. This video experience explores the micro and macro parts of the desert in Joshua Tree, California and encourages the viewer to put their dreams in the open space. There is a slowness, a pause, a pocket to breathe, to be as a rock, an endlessness, a gradient.
I am sending the sea in Denmark to the desert in California. At the moment I dive down below the surface and hear the rain falling in heavy drops, underwater, I discover new secret spaces that are close to me and at the same time infinitely far away.
