In a nondescript building on the outskirts of Downtown Los Angeles is a new pop-up art installation and marketplace called "W.I.P." (Work in Progress). The installation, co-curated by Roger Gastman and Doug Davis, is housed in a 5,000 square foot space that was formerly a karaoke bar, where it had a unique layout with multiple rooms that are now sectioned into the main and sub-galleries. Each side room is home to one or two artists giving each it's own feel and presence and the space, like many of the artists represented, exists at the cross section of urban and fine art. "W.I.P." is a constantly evolving exhibit.
Chicago artist Pose recently rocked an installation in Detroit’s Belt, an alley in the city’s downtown that has been converted into an outdoor art exhibition space, curated by Library Street Collective. Already filled with art from some of the world’s leading street and contemporary artists, Pose has added to the madness with his signature collage of vibrant colors and cartoony textures.
