Free tom: LAXART Pop-Up Shop

Posted by Carren Jao Pineda |




Culver City art collective LAXART will host a pop-up shop with the works of text-based artist Alexandra Grant. Literally asking each visitor to "buy" love this holiday season, the pop-up will have Grant's Love Rings, Love Necklaces and Love Bronzes up for sale for the benefit of the artist's Love House at the Watts House Project (WHP).

WHP is an artist-led revitalization of the neighborhood across the historic Watts House Towers in Los Angeles. Instead of creating all-encompassing masterplans, renovations are made with the community itself, a strategy that reminds me of Project H's approach to design.

If Grant's vision is realized, a oversized Love sign will eventually grace the home of the Cerants--a design homeowner Moneik says is accurate and artistic. Here's the rendering from the artist's project site.
