Distinctive Messengers Exhibit at the House of Campari


The event featured cocktails of Campari and orange juice alongside the art and performance

'Distinctive Messengers,' an ongoing exhibition of contemporary art at the House of Campari,  presents a group of emerging artists who have had or will have a first solo show in a Los Angeles art gallery.  The exhibition, which runs from May 19-June 10, is a chance art enthusiasts to get to encounter a sampler of these artists' cutting edge work and to whet the appetite for their future solo shows.

Chris Noth at House of Campari Opening Event

This is the third annual group show to present up-an-coming artists featured in some of LA's most visionary galleries. In addition, the House of Campari is partnering with media and arts organizations to host a series of exclusive, high-profile events over the next three weeks, making the space a vibrant locus for the Los Angeles cultural avant-garde.

The burlesque show by Forty Deuce

Along with the works, the exhibition has a number of installations by the artists and includes the First Campari Commission.  The commission by Nathan Mabry, Mosaic Mask (XXX), uses colored pencil on mylar to collide the texture and depth of an ancient Miztec mask with the 'bling' of modern street culture for a humorous take on the fetishation of image. .

The opening included a show by Forty Deuce

The opening night reception event featured a performance by Ivan Kane's Forty Deuce and was coordinated with Vanity Fair and MOCA.  Tuesday, May 22nd brings the New Yorker Magazine and a live musical performance by Ferraby Lionheart to the space.  On Thursday, May 24, Dwell Magazine and the Scope International Contemporary Art Fair will present the Perpetual Art Machine,  a living archive and installation of 21st century international video art.  On Thursday, May 31, the gallery will  present a performance by My Barbarian in cooperation with Art in America and LAXART.  The closing event on June 7 brings together W Magazine and the LACMA Modern and Contemporary Art Council.
