Artopia 2014 – May 15 2014 – Grand Central Market

ArtopiaGet tickets: http://ticketf.ly/1gMdLLF

L.A. Weekly is excited to confirm the artist lineup for this year’s Artopia! Taking place Thursday, May 15 from 7 to 11 p.m. at Grand Central Market, this year’s Artopia will focus on L.A.’s vibrant arts and culture scene, with a special focus on downtown, as well as celebrate the L.A. Weekly’s People Issue.

Curated by art critic (and L.A. Weekly contributor) Shana Nys Dambrot, this year’s Artopia features live mural painting by artists HUEMAN, Jim Mahfood and Jason Shawn Alexander, sculptural installations by Ramiro Gomez, a 3D Blacklight Experience from Debi Cable as well as a high-fashion peep show from the Bohemian Society featuring special guests Alexey Steele, Mika Mae Jones, Tyson Lee Smyer, Cielo Garcia, Kaylani Lei and Annie Cruz. Creative collective dublab will be curating a music installation including multiple DJ stations and performances. The Peach Kings and The Record Company will be performing live.

Curator Shana Nys Dambrot describes the vision of Artopia as experiential, saying: “We are entranced by the allure of experience. Art is a visual language, of course; but art, like life, is much more than pictures. Artopia is a place where art is everything and everything is art — painting, yes of course, and fashion (especially fashion), architecture, bustling crowds, film, food, open bars and dance music. Society is a fantastic spectacle of simultaneity, immersion, transgression, beauty, history, surprise, decadence, and most importantly, other people. And since we gather to celebrate the new People Issue, for Artopia we’ve assembled a family of performers, models, painters, designers, technicians, and deejays to weave a multi-sensory experience of after-hours culture in an historic location, with freehand mural-making, interactive projections, peep shows, body-printing, sculptural installations, and living dolls — all with a particular nod to the seduction of the handmade and the extravagances of the people who make downtown L.A. a haven for the urban avant-garde.”

General admission tickets are $30 and include entrance to the event as well as wine and beer. For more information and updates on Artopia and more information on the participating artists, check out laweekly.com/artopia

See you there!
