It seems like large-scale, immersive and, most of all, Instagram-ready pop-ups are the new norm (Museum of Ice Cream, anyone?), and L.A.’s latest buzz-worthy offering—just in time for all your, ahem, creative holiday gift shopping—is no exception.
“The Chronicles of L.A.,” a series of shopping and interactive art experiences, is the brainchild of multimedia artist James Mountford and fashion veteran Leena Similu, and the first one is set to take place this Friday and Saturday, December 1 and 2, at an undisclosed location in Downtown Los Angeles. It’s so mysterious, in fact, that prospective attendees must RSVP to get full details.
What we can, however, tell you is that the first installation will gather over 60 artists, musicians, designers and makers to offer art, live performances and goods for sale, all under the theme of sex. Do we have your attention yet? While we don’t know exactly where “The Chronicles of L.A.” will emerge, we have been informed that the pop-up will take over a vintage hotel.
A few of the participants that have been announced include leather bodywear (think garters and harnesses) designer Melissa Tofton, sensual tool maker and sculptor Adele Brydges, dancer and choreographer Jessica Emmanuel, swimwear brand Fantabody and performance artist Amanda Maciel Antunes.
The rest, well you’ll have to leave to your imagination for now.
