LOS ANGELES, Calif. – January 2010 -Debuting on Jan. 23, Scion launches the sixth edition of its successful art tour, “Installation 6: Video”. The tour opens in Los Angeles at Scion’s own 4,200 square foot Installation L.A. Space gallery in Culver City. The opening reception takes place on January 23, 7 p.m. – 10 p.m. and is free with complimentary valet parking and an open bar. The exhibit will run until February 13.
The annual tour, designed to expose established and emerging artists and their work to audiences across the country, features a distinctive selection of international talent and visits Los Angeles, New York, Minneapolis and Austin, as well as a newly added stop in Wichita, Kan.
For 2010, the tour focuses on the video medium, which emerged in the 1960s and has since expanded galleries into more experimental, kinetic and interactive spaces. “Installation 6: Video” challenged 10 artists to create non-narrative video installations that will transform five unique exhibitions. Artists include: Dust la Rock (Brooklyn, NY), Eric Nakamura (Los Angeles, CA), Saelee Oh (Los Angeles, CA), French (London, England), Ill-Studio (Paris, France), Josh Graham (New York, NY), Monihan Monihan (New York, NY), Mark Mothersbaugh (Los Angeles, CA), PMKFA (Tokyo, Japan) and Sage Vaughn (Los Angeles, CA).
“For ‘Installation 6,’ we unveil a full exhibition of video installations that illustrate how 10 emerging artists and creative icons see the world through vivid movement and color,” says Jeri Yoshizu, Scion manager, sales promotions. “In our continued support of independent artistic expression, we are eager to introduce audiences across the country to inventive works by leading talent in art, music and design who push the boundaries of creativity with every medium they explore.”
