On Friday night, November 5th, Incase is proud to present opening night of the Latin American Graphic Design show at THIS Los Angeles. In celebration of the opening we’ve created 100 limited-edition tote bags featuring design work by Material. These one of a kind, lovingly hand-printed 10 oz cotton canvas totes are big enough to fit at least 20 lbs of groceries or 40 of your favorite records. Nice, comfy and fun.
Here’s THIS Los Angeles gallery curator Luis Farfan with a few words about the Latin American Graphic Design show:
“Our first in a series of global explorations into the greater design community. THIS turns it’s eye towards the thriving design community of Latin American countries: Mexico, Chile, Brazil, Guatemala, Argentina and Paraguay are all represented by some of the most exciting and interesting designers their nation has to offer. Like Russia in the 20’s, Europe in the 40’s or America in the 60’s; the Latin American region today is undergoing a profound and pronounced social, political and artistic change. Graphic Design has always been a functional art form that is reactionary and informative. It is a tool used to inspire and educate. There is something interesting going on here— we aim to explore and celebrate a unique aesthetic and approach in modern design.”
Located in the Highland Park neighborhood of east Los Angeles, THIS is owned and operated by six of our friends, (photographers Dan Monick, Aaron Farley, and Claire & Jeremy Weiss of Day 19 and graphic designers Justin Van Hoy and Luis Farfan). THIS functions as an art gallery, photography studio, production house, and makeshift live performance venue for the LA-based collective and their fellow artists from around the world.
Since the gallery’s launch earlier this spring, opening nights at THIS have fast become the most eagerly anticipated arts event in town, routinely bringing together hundreds of friends and artists. We believe THIS Los Angeles has goodwill worth supporting, sharing and celebrating. Please join Incase & THIS on Friday, November 5th from 7-to-10 PM for opening night of the Latin American Graphic Design show. And remember, these INCASE x THIS Los Angeles totes are available free (!!!) to the first 100 art lovers/gallery lurkers to skip through the door. Arrive early, grab two!
