art in LA: Barry McGee and Philip Frost 'mindthegap'

Last night I had the great pleasure of working at the opening of West Hollywood's new Prism Gallery. The gallery is the artsy baby of young [like, really, really young] fellow PC Valmorbida. With ties to Vladimir Restoin Roitfeld (yes, as in French Vogue Editor's Carine Roitfeld's son) and other fabulous young art fiends from both coasts and abroad, the gallery is intended to bring a little bit of New York's young, but sophisticated art culture to LA.

The show that opened the new space last night (to much celebrity, skater, and fashiony fanfare) is 'mindthegap.' Curated by RVCA founder PM Tenore, it features San Fran's Barry McGee (who had an awesome show at LA's REDCAT just last year) and NYC's Phil Frost.

My favorite part of the show? The eery mannequin who quietly and slowly graffittied allllll night long at the show's entrance. Yes, I almost talked to him several times. No, I had not been drinking.

mindthegap will be open to the public from November 20, 2000 - February 20, 2010. Go check it out.
