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.

This one-of-a-kind fundraiser—kicking off the Park’s brand-new literary arts series—invites Angelenos to participate in an interactive evening on April Fools’. Hosted by radio reporter Rico Gagliano and curated by writer Diana Wagman, Bamboozled: Fact. Fiction. Art? The Art of Deception promises a night to remember with live readings by four notable LA-based authors, Lisa Teasley, Deborah Vankin, Bill Lambrinides and Cherry Chevapravatdumrong.

The audience then gets to decide whether or not each writer’s intricate stories are, in fact, Fact or Fiction? Signed copies of the authors’ books will be awarded to the evening’s winners. During the performance, artist and muralist Annie Preece will be creating a live painting based on the stories told, which will be raffled off at the end of the night.

The event has been brought to the Park by the Barnsdall Art Park Foundation and made possible by a grant from the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs. Bamboozled is part of the Park’s distinctive year-round programming, which also includes its famed wine tastings to movie nights.
