The fifth and final edition of Beyond Eden will once again be hosted by the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery at Barnsdall Park this coming October. Beyond Eden is a multi-gallery event celebrating the New Contemporary art movement in Los Angeles put together by Andrew Hosner (co-owner / curator at Thinkspace) and made possible by the City Of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs. The public is invited to attend this special event and admission will be $5 and open to all.

Each successive Beyond Eden event grows larger and larger with combined average attendance well over 5,000 people for the past four years of the event. The New Contemporary Art Movement continues to build momentum on a national level and is finally starting to receive mainstream recognition from major institutions and publications the world over. With its foundation firmly planted in Southern California and a patron base here in Los Angeles that has been building over the past several decades, it’s easy to see why Beyond Eden has been welcomed with such open arms by the Los Angeles arts community and has become an anticipated annual event.

It will be sad to see it go but due to rising costs associated with the City, we can simply no longer afford to put this on and have it live up to the standards of our past events. We plan to make this final event one for the history books and one you won’t soon forget!

Beyond Eden 2015 will showcase the works of five of California’s finest New Contemporary art galleries and will be held during the weekend of October 3rd and 4th with an opening night celebration planned for Saturday, October 3rd from 6-11PM.

Participating galleries include C.A.V.E. Gallery (Venice, CA), Copro Gallery (Santa Monica, CA), Spoke Art (San Francisco, CA), Hashimoto Contempoary (San Francisco, CA) and event organizers Thinkspace (Culver City, CA)

Beyond Eden 2015 will also feature a special solo showcase from Thinkspace represented artist Meggs. ‘Paving Paradise’ will feature an array of new works from the Australian artist along with a large-scale painting / mural for all to enjoy.

Spoke Art definitely made waves in New York City with their sixth annual Wes Anderson art exhibit, “Bad Dads”. The word on the street was that 60,000 people visited the gallery through the weekend engagement. Wes Anderson and Jason Schwartzman visited the gallery during the show to give a kind affirmation to Spoke Art and it’s group of artists. There was great press coverage; Vogue Magazine and the Wall Street Journal featured the event. I’m very proud to have shared the spotlight with all the great artists who made this one of the coolest art shows of the summer!  

My contribution to Spoke Art’s “Bad Dads” is inspired by the spirit and setting of Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel. When writing the script for The Grand Budapest Hotel, Wes Anderson and Hugo Guinness were deeply inspired by the writings of the early 20th Century Austrian author Stefan Zweig.

Meditating on The Grand Budapest Hotel, my mind naturally gravitated to Austrian artist Gustav Klimt’s gold and silver metallic palette, composition, and use of pattern. I wanted my art print to have a period Viennese style. Anderson’s character Agatha strikes a Klimtische pose adorned in gold and silver ink, discreetly holding the hotel’s concierge Monsieur Gustav H.’s prison-break tools behind her back. Agatha is set against the meticulously recreated period wallpaper pattern from her bedroom.

“Bad Dads” began six years ago as a pop-up exhibition curated by gallery owner Ken Harman and has now blossomed through the years into a highly anticipated, memorable, and often costumed art event. Gaining international recognition, the exhibition has evolved along with Anderson’s eight feature films (as well as numerous shorts and commercial features) giving each and every artist a well of inspiration to draw from.

Comprised of original painting and sculpture as well as a multitude of limited edition prints, “Bad Dads VI” is a wide-ranging display of artistry from all over the world. Exhibiting a host of different styles and talents, each artist approaches their work with the same meticulous detail that Anderson approaches his. Drawing upon the stylized world that Anderson has set forth, each artist was free to choose their own film for subject matter, resulting in a spectacular range of character portraits, highly detailed environments and iconic themes and motifs, prominent in each of Anderson’s films.
