A Three Day Exhibition in New York
New York, NY – For a special three-day only exhibition, Los Angeles based contemporary gallery LeBasse Projects expands its horizons to the East Coast. LeBasse Projects’ temporary exhibition offers New York a collection of work by some of the gallery’s best and brightest talent. ‘Go East’ presents the gallery’s penchant for fresh, innovative artists featuring Yoskay Yamamoto, Tessar Lo, Edwin Ushiro, Joao Ruas, Eric Fortune, Mia, and Nate Frizzell.
Though LeBasse Projects calls Culver City’s Art District home base, it aims to conceptually extend its white walls and showcase its core group of artists. Originally born as the monthly art party ‘project:’ in 2005, LeBasse quickly evolved into a gallery after founder, Beau Basse gained a following for his strength in exhibiting new talent. Now the re-branded gallery shows its serious commitment to bringing their talented roster of artists directly to collectors. Besides regular in-house exhibitions, LBP has begun participating in major art fairs and is hosting ‘pop-up’ shows both nationally and internationally.
The ‘Go East’ exhibition marks one of many future endeavors LeBasse Projects is planning to carry the messages of its artists around the globe. The seven artists in this exhibition represent the many new contemporary style that LeBasse Projects has helped define.

If you happened to miss our post on the Hello Kitty 3 Apples – 35th Anniversary event please check it out, GDK took some amazing photos that will be sure to make any young or gracefully aged girl go ape! Think I’m kidding? Peep the pictures and you will know exactly what I and many others are talking about. Oh HK, how I love thee!
I, personally can never get tired of reading interviews with Frank Kozik, I am a huge fan of his work. Especially the toys. What’s really cool is that I had no idea it was him all those years before producing art work for show posters and album art. Then I became a huge fan when I started collecting vinyl art. Our very own Randi did us proud. Don’t sleep on this!
It’s common knowledge that two heads are better than one, but when you have two rebellious chicks and their cameras you’ve got quite a combo. Ellen Auerbach and Grete Stern were the Thelma and Louise of the 1930s art world. They were rebels without a cause. Women with a specific mission: to conquer the male dominated art world.
Need I say more? Conquer the male dominated art world. Get your HERstory lesson dose today.
