To commemorate the opening of Arkitip and Incase’s joint artistic and event space venture, Project Space, the duo with a longstanding partnership had called on one of their long-time collaborators, Parra, to put together his artwork for the inaugural exhibition at Project Space. The new spot in Los Angeles is a hybrid of gallery, event and retail space all rolled into one. It is a unique setting and meant to be a platform for exhibition, performances, installation and of course, shopping.
After weeks of news and fevered discussion amongst the artistic and fans of Arkitip and Incase, the space finally opened on April 1. It might be on April Fools’ Day, but there is no joke about the full-house turn out. The opening exhibition by Parra is named an extremely affirmative “Yes, Yes Yes” and it showcases Parra’s signature fanciful and provocative creatures and illustrations in a new direction– only executed in black and white.
Aside from framed works, Parra had also hand-painted the event space and christened it with one of his womanly figures riding on a speedy bike. Visitors beamed in and slowly brimmed out as more and more people showed up to hang out, enjoy Parra’s work and get their goods signed by the Dutch artist. via: Incase
