Video Tour & Opening Reception Party of November Exhibitions featuring works from Alex Face, Dustin Myers, Aof Smith, Anjastama HP, and AngelOnce at Thinkspace Projects

What amazing vibes this past Saturday! Our community continues to grow and get stronger every month, thank you all for coming through. Much love to all of this month’s exhibiting artists for delivering such strong bodies of work and for trusting in us, it was a beautiful evening.

In Gallery I, explore Alex Face’s (@alexfacebkk) ‘Fictional City’ that will take viewers on a journey of new situations and elements using the artist’s highly recognizable iconography.

Dustin Myers (@dustinmyersart) is celebrating the imperfections in Gallery II with ‘Perfectly Normal.’ The show brings forward the imperfections that are overlooked and challenges the conventional standards of beauty.

Vibration’ by Aof Smith (@aofsmith) is a dive into the whimsical world the artist is able to create in Gallery III. The artist creates fantastical creatures drawing inspiration from manga, science fiction, and other art forms.

In Gallery IV, you can explore the Javanese culture in Anjastama HP’s (@anjastamahp) debut U.S. solo exhibition, ‘Myths of Ganendra.’ The artist has woven their culture so beautifully throughout the collection.

AngelOnce (@angelonce) is showing ‘Icons: Pop Art Reimagined’ in the Dog House. The show is a vibrant and playful exploration of pop, culture icons, and the artist’s character, Charlie the Angry Elephant.

Shout out to all that rocked the Night Market in our courtyard as well including our mayor of festivities GoopMassta along with Michael James B.CruxKarpet Workshop, Made In Chino, The Cure Company, Zavalas Pies, Kabob Senpai, Mad Barista 1989, Liquid DeathVenice Beats and Digital Debris Video Gallery.

Always in pursuit of uniting and elevating the New Contemporary Art community, Thinkspace Projects teams up with Tlaloc Studios and the Perez Bros to present ‘RAIZ II’. Building on the community created with our first ‘RAIZ’ exhibition that took place at the Brand Library and Art Center in Glendale, California earlier this year, ‘RAIZ II’ seeks to strengthen.

We are also excited to be able to provide Alejandra and Vicente Perez their first opportunity to curate as well. The brothers have helped to make ‘RAIZ II’ a true family affair and we are so honored to have them a part of this special showcase.

With nearly 60 artists in the group show alone, the extravaganza is sure to be diverse and varied, bringing universal appeal from so many incredible contributors. With a focus on local Los Angeles based artists, the lineup is as impressive as it is varied. A solo show from the legendary Carlos Ramirez (ex-Date Farmers) rounds out the exhibition, filling the walls with innovative and genre-blending pieces across several mediums from the Coachella Valley artist.

The surrounding grounds themselves will also be bursting with compelling content, from live screen printing with our friends at Blue Hill Studios to a mini-mart filled with local creatives put together by the Bloody Gums artist collective alongside installations and more from the Bloody Gums crew plus local low rider club Bajitos Del Valle will be on hand to showcase as well. Save the date and we will see you soon!

The show opens with a special celebration on Thursday, September 28th with a reception from 4PM to 7PM. The exhibition will be on view from September 26 through October 27 at the Walter N. Marks Center for the Arts, located at the College of the Desert in Palm Desert, California.
