We stopped by Meggs’s Venice studio to check up on the finishing touches to his solo exhibition ‘Paving Paradise‘ at Beyond Eden opening this weekend. A multi-gallery event celebrating the New Contemporary Art Movement, Beyond Eden in it’s fifth and final edition will be at LAMAG October 3rd and 4th. Saturday’s hours for Beyond Eden will be 6pm-11pm and Sunday noon to 5pm; admission is $5 at the door.
The artwork in this show plays on the same irony and notion of tragedy. Consumerism, materialism, and over-development of the urban landscape are rapidly devastating the same natural resources and beauty we conceive as ‘Paradise’ — a utopian place where its community can live in peace, resources are sustainable, and we can equally appreciate the natural and social environment we live in.
please note there will not be an ATM at the gallery
