We have a nice big white wall in the living room waiting patiently for paintings. I want to cover it from head to foot in art. We’ve got the art. Just need to figure out how to make it all fit together.
I had such a great day earlier this week touring JF Chen‘s showroom as they were setting up for the “Collecting Eames” exhibition with Daniel Ostroff (his collection of over 150 pieces was bought by Chen who then added to it – substantially). I met Joel Chen and his daughter Bianca and also the designer of the exhibition, artist Clare Graham. Moments like these I do truly love living in Los Angeles. The show is a must-see. There’s over 450 pieces of Eames design. It reminded me just how extraordinary Ray and Charles were. And all those pieces? Every single one if for sale. Here are just a few pics from my morning. Make sure you get there yourself if you’re in LA. Details: “Collecting Eames: The JF Chen Collection” is part of Pacific Standard Time. JF Chen, 941 North Highland Avenue, Los Angeles, California 90038 October 3–January 14. Show hours are Monday through Friday 10am to 4pm, Saturday 11 to 4pm, and closed on Sunday
Went to the press preview today for this great exhibition at LACMA. Amazing show. Another must-see (JF Chen, now this). There’s so much to say about this show – so many gems, but I don’t have the time or energy to devote to it tonight. I’ll follow up next week but just wanted to get these shots up. What do you think?
