Eurotrash,the highly anticipated second phase of Lazarides‘ four-show pop upextravaganza kicked off this weekend with a preview party at the BeverlyHills gallery. Art fans, collectors, artists and press poured throughthe doors all night long, eager for a sneak peek at what’s bound to beanother successful show for the London-based gallery. The unsuspectingspace, smack-dab in the middle of one of LA’s largest retail districtsprovides the perfect backdrop for Vhils‘ chipped wall portraits; JR‘smonumental, monochromatic wheat pasted photographs; Conor Harrington‘shistorical, graffiti-spattered canvases; and Antony Micallef‘s sexualand animalistic compositions. Together, the artists have forged anexperience that not only explores Europe’s urban dynamic andunconventional art-making techniques, but real humanist conflict andsocial awareness. Eurotrash runs through June 27
