The Analog Salon (Grand Opening)
Samitaur Constructs Lobby Gallery
3535 Hayden Avenue, Culver City 90232
The idea of Hollywood has intrigued and inspired image-makers for the last century and it’s no different today. Photographers find themselves continually fascinated by not only the notion of Hollywood, but by the city and community of Hollywood. For some, it’s the feeling of noir and night, for others, it’s the reality of the streets and neighborhoods. Photographers are influenced by movie stars and the idea of celebrity, and by the movies themselves. There is a rich tapestry of photographic ideas and inspiration that emerge from the tangible and intangible idea of Hollywood, and with each unique photographic vision, these photographers are Redefining Hollywood.
About the Analog Salon
The Analog Salon is a project space donated by Samitaur. In a partnership with Digital Fusion, Analog Salon highlights exceptional talent in the world of fine art photography. By partnering with industry leaders, DF is helping showcase artists in a salon setting in Culver City by celebrating new, emerging and established photographers with an emphasis on Los Angeles based artists.
The new space represents a modern movement in supporting the arts by providing not only a space but a full production and marketing project to showcase talent and support artist efforts. The space will provide sponsored printing and framing, sponsored events based on the work and will include lectured, discussion panels and artist talks. All events will have a reception event and will be backed by local arts and entertainment media.
Along with Samitaur Constructs and under the guidance of architect Eric Owen Moss, Digital Fusion has provided a space to display and celebrate photography. Regular curated gallery exhibits will occur at the Culver City canvas setting. A dynamic partnership has been established with Contemporary Cultural led by cultural curator Edgar Varela as well as partnerships with local art world staples; Artweek LA, LA Canvas, Flavorpill LA, KCRW & Dublab..
The Analog Gallery will ad to the important dialogue taking place in the art world and will integrate the associated entities as an important part of the life of Los Angeles culture.
