As part of designLAb, Pacific Design Center’s nationally recognized arts program, PDC is will be debuting a permanent installation from French artist Xavier Veilhan, on view from June 12 onwards. The monumental mobile, titled “Mobile n°3 (Music),” composed of thirty floating spheres can be viewed from two levels within PDC’s Green Building to embrace the artistic language of architect Cesar Pelli’s landmark work. Now showcased permanently at Pacific Design Center, “Mobile n°3 (Music)” debuted this spring at Galerie Perrotin, in a double exhibition held simultaneously in the gallery’s New York and Paris locations.

One of the leading artists of his generation, Veilhan has developed a multi-form approach to sculpture, painting, performance, video and photography and is best known for his large-scale installations. Pacific Design Center’s owner and real estate mogul, Charles S Cohen, has multiple pieces in his personal collection and deems Veilhan a modern-day Calder. Veilhan gained international recognition with his 2009 exhibition at Chateau de Versailles in France. Recent projects in the U.S. include site-specific exhibitions in Los Angeles in 2012-2013 (Sheats-Goldstein Residence, Richard Neutra’s VDL Research House in Silver Lake, Case Study House no.21), “Jean-Marc” (2012) an outdoor work installed in midtown Manhattan and “Le Corbusier” (2013), a large-scale bust of the architect now permanently installed in Miami’s Design District. The Veilhan mobile joins other permanent installations at the PDC that include commissioned works by Erwin Redl, Gerardo Hacer and Antonio Pio Saracino, which are located in the Red Building.

The Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery and Juxtapoz magazine are pleased to present new works by Robert Williams in SLANG Aesthetics! in conjunction with 20 Years Under the Influence of Juxtapoz, a group exhibition by guest curators Andrew Hosner of Thinkspace Gallery and Gary Pressman of Copro Gallery. Both exhibitions will be on view at the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery from February 22nd to April 19th, 2015. These two exhibitions commemorate the 20th anniversary of Juxtapoz magazine, founded by Williams in 1994, and it’s vast influence on several generations of artists.

Screen Shot 2015-02-12 at 1.29.19 PM

Juxtapoz magazine allowed Robert Williams to create a platform for this young and insurgent energy on the West Coast and, with its unprecedented success, Williams became widely upheld as the godfather of the lowbrow and pop surrealist art movements. His first major body of work to debut in Los Angeles in well over a decade, SLANG! Aesthetics will feature 25 new oil paintings by the artist alongside a suite of drawings and a series of large-scale sculptures fabricated with the assistance of Gentle Giant Studios.

Screen Shot 2015-02-12 at 1.51.45 PM

What once began as an alternative magazine, Juxtapoz is now the most widely disseminated art publication in the world. Predicated on the rejection of the artificial boundaries that kept “high” art removed from popular culture, Juxtapoz effectively broke down those walls to allow young artists a chance at their own history.
