Multidisciplinary creative studio OFFSITE.STUDIO focused on a dynamic artist collaborations with SIZED in Los Angeles, an exhibition and platform of works for the home and life.
On view from Tuesday June 15th through Sunday June 27th in Los Angeles, SIZED features over 300 objects from nearly 60 collaborators — artists, designers, dealers and collectors — across 15,000 square feet.
AN EXPANSIVE EXHIBITION FEATURING WORKS BY STERLING RUBY, MICHÈLE LAMY, JORDAN WOLFSON, VANESSA BEECROFT AND MORE
Curated by OFFSITE.STUDIO founder and creative director Alexander May, the expansive exhibition treats site as medium and object as aura. Meditating on how we collect, May has, for the central installation, gathered numerous works upon a low-rise stage, calling attention to the relationship between objects and our performative lives. Pieces new and old, artists emerging and established, collide for a unique, site-specific experience that heightens discovery.
Works on view for the first time include: a one-of-one polished aluminum and fabric sculpture by STERLING RUBY / S.R. STUDIO. LA. CA, made exclusively for SIZED; a white patent leather and foam chair by Studio Shamshiri in collaboration with John Williams; a handmade bent steel rebar, resin and poured glass outdoor table set by Cactus store; a khaki steel and clouded resin side table and bone white steel and calf leather stool by Saunders; an asymmetrical chiffon puffer by NO SESSO; a lacquered wood and sun bleached laminate chest, Snow White and the Seven Drawers, by Ryan Preciado; and a pair of 1969 vintage Mustang seats by Luka Sabbat, among others.
Upstairs on the mezzanine level, TIWA Select presents an ephemeral tea space and mezcal bar, designed by founder Alex Tieghi-Walker. Works commissioned for the installation include plant-dyed boro textiles from Megumi Shauna Arai; a 12-foot oak table created from salvaged Victorian floorboards; an Ikebana Light by Korean designer Minjae Kim; stools from Vince Skelly; and a small selection of vessels by Jim McDowell and Andrée Singer Thompson. TIWA Select, in partnership with YOLA Mezcal, will also unveil a collection of limited-edition mezcal copitas by nine artists, including Simone Bodmer-Turner and Phoebe Collings-James.
