Like ‘infinity’ installations? Like cake? There’s a new exhibition coming to Los Angeles you might just fall in love with.
Scott Hove, an artist perhaps known best for creating Cakeland, a massive cake maze that debuted last year in DTLA, will continue his sugary-themed works with two separate openings at two galleries in September, all as part of a new exhibition entitled Last Ticket for the Beauty Train.
Hove’s new work will address political and socially conscious messages hidden under the guise of fluffy frosting and cake piping. The work is designed as a commentary on comfort, pleasure, celebration and their dark counterparts in the form of bright delicious looking artificial cakes.
On September 1, from 7 to 10 p.m. KP Projects Chinatown Pop-Up will host an opening reception for Last Ticket For the Beauty Train featuring a fully-immersive, timed walkthrough of decadent chandelier sculptures and a mirrored infinity chamber. To gain access to the free reception, the public must RSVP (required) to [email protected].
The second opening will be on September 9 from 7 to 10 p.m at KP Projects La Brea Gallery. The evening will feature nearly 30 new pieces of sculptures and installations that examines what Hove terms “the failures of the Illuminati.” To gain access to the free reception, the public must RSVP (required) to [email protected].
Both exhibits are free and will run from their opening dates through September 30.
The KP Projects La Brea gallery is located at 170 South La Brea Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90036. Normal hours are Tuesday-Saturday from noon to 6 p.m.
The Chinatown pop-up will take place at 936 Mei Ling Way, Los Angeles, CA 90012. Visiting hours are on weekends only (Saturday-Sunday) and you’ll need to RSVP for timed entry by emailing [email protected]. At this time they are only taking RSVP’s for September 1 from 7-10 p.m. and September 2 from 5-10 p.m. No Chinatown Summer Nights foot traffic will be allowed in the installation room that evening without an RSVP before hand. Hours for the month of September will be established soon. You can stay up-to-date about the opening hours later in the month of September by checking in on the KP Projects website.
