Come to the east side of downtown for ArtWalk tonight (Thursday, May 9, 2013) and see two (count ’em 2!) shows featuring work by “Young Turks” filmmakers Stephen Seemayer and Pamela Wilson.
At Angel City Brewery, the “In Your Face: How Artists Transformed L.A.’s Urban Landscape” exhibit includes photocollages by Wilson and Seemayer made from images of long lost haunts once frequented by the Turks. Each piece is a one-of-a-kind, framed and signed print featuring images of such lamented landmarks as the Atomic Café, Al’s Bar, Yee Mee Loo, Craby Joe’s and Torchy’s. There is also a limited edition softcover book of the whole collection which will be on sale tonight for $20.
At the nearby District Gallery, Seemayer’s latest is on display in a solo exhibit, “Signs of the Times.” The show includes 63 new artworks inspired by Occupy L.A. and a short new movie by Seemayer and Wilson of photos and video they took during the two-month protest on the lawn of City Hall.In Your Face continues through June 9.
