The Gabba Gallery in Los Angeles will host an opening reception Saturday April 23rd from 7pm-11pm, for \Brit-fluence(d)\, a BritWeek group art show, exploring the art of UK x L.A. emerging and urban artists, and how they’ve been influenced by British Culture. Among the work being exhibited is “The Prophet of the New Aeon” by Lisa Derrick. This piece features 93 people who knew or were influenced by Aleister Crowley.
The art show represents a mix of artists influenced by British Culture. Whether it’s been with music, film, literature, fashion, architecture, philosophy, tpop-culture or science, Britain has affected us.
Through \Brit-fluence(d)\ at The Gabba Gallery, curated by Cindy Schwarzstein, founder of Cartwheel Art Magazine & Cartwheel Art Tours, we, will explore the British influence in Los Angeles through the visual art of a diverse group of artists working in a variety of mediums.
From UK artists, who call LA home, to UK artists who have worked in LA—some of whom have painted murals on our streets including Animal Alley. Gabba Arts Distrct and in the Downtown Los Angeles Arts District—to artists living in LA who’ve been influenced by British Culture, \Brit-fluence(d)\ celebrates British Culture in LA.
To further cement this exchange and influence, each artist will include a statement describing how their work personally connects to British culture.
