For those who missed the disco night with Com Truise and Heat Wave, here are some photos that will make you understand why you can't miss these things.


Fireworks and Mezcal With LAND

It’s always a good sign when you sell the art before the gallery doors have opened.

Despite FedEx’s best efforts, LAND’s new collection of works, Peace Flags, made its way from Austin to LA for a huge opening night. While the temperatures soared, Madre Mezcal, Obvious Wines, PBR, and Topo Chico kept everyone cool, and the best pizza in town (Pizzanista!) provided valuable carbs to the Chances With Wolves dancefloor.

LAND’s new work branches out into a new and surprising realm of colour and materials—an interesting aesthetic shift for the Texan collective. To top the night off, we put on a display of fireworks that definitely had nothing to do with the two music festivals occurring simultaneously around the perimeter of 1700 Naud.

Peace Flags will be on view July 29th – Aug 9th (excluding weekends) from 1 to 5 pm.
Closing reception Saturday, Aug 10th at 7pm

The LA-based collective brought their A game to 1700 Naud, with an impressive roster of exhibiting photographers, including Collin Erie, David Black, Emily Shur, Christaan Felber, Dustin Aksland, Jessica Antola, Joao Canziani, Jon Paul Douglass, Micaiah Carter, Peter Sutherland, Todd Cole, Tom Van Schelven, Art Streiber, Jake Stangel, RJ Shaughnessy, and Justin Fantl. We could barely fit ‘em all in.

Check out the insane work on display and the huge crowd that turned out to enjoy the show. And don’t forget to RSVP for LAND’s brand new exhibitionPeace Flags, coming to 1700 Naud this Friday.
