For years, Thinkspace Gallery based in Los Angeles has been exporting its massive roster to cities all over the world with their “LAX” exhibition series. Named for their collaborative gallery’s local airport, respectively, the group show travels to Detroit tomorrow in cooperation with Inner State Gallery. “LAX/DTW” is one of the series’ largest installments to date, boasting over 80 international artists, including two showcases by artists Stephanie Buer and Liz Brizzi. Every artist has contributed a 16×20″ piece making a consistent, but stylistically eclectic collection that includes Adam Caldwell, Brian Mashburn, Chiew Yoshii, Curiot, Drew Leshko, Eine, James Bullough, Kevin Peterson, Kojiro Takakuwa, Matthew Grabelsky, Sean Mahan, featured below, to name a few. Their work represents new ideas and applications that young Contemporary artists are exploring, spanning street art and graffiti, sculpture, and illustration. In the case of Portland based aritst Stephanie Buer and Los Angeles based Liz Brizzi, they are explorers in their own right. Each will exhibit a new series inspired by her surroundings. While Buer uses her paintings as a means for discovering new places, Brizzi takes inspiration from her global travels. Her collages incorporate her own photographs of major cities, remixed into colorful dreamscapes. Take a look at more images from “LAX/DTW” below.
