Out There exhibition 9th - 16th June 2017 (LAAA

LA ARTS ASSOCIATION (LAAA) 

825 N La Cienega Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90069

As part of LAAA ongoing efforts to provide challenging exhibitions and collaborative opportunities for their artist membership, back by popular demand "VS.", a special juried group exhibition that offers LAAA artists an opportunity to create original collaborative works of art (all media accepted) with another randomly selected LAAA artist. 

Miss Brightside and Preston M. Smith (PMS) founded their collaboration on their primary color palette and an objective to investigate gender.

The tactile, daringly touchable and almost edible nature of PMS’s abstract work is paramount in his method. 

Childhood development and desirable objects are fundamental to Brightside's practice.  

The element of performance and audience participation in “Gang Bang” is integral to this collaboration and investigation.  It’s vital to both artists that the performance involves the patrons on opening night using the 72 plush toy cocks and boobs in a live "Assemblage" process. Only by working together do the barriers of society start to break down.
