Last night’s opening reception for the Ari Marcopoulos exhibition “Now is Forever” was a celebration of the past and the present between friends and admirers at Project Space. The event featured a combination of photo and video visuals as well as a look at the new Ari Marcopoulos Camera Bag.
The exhibition presented images from Ari’s new book via a wall mounted presentation constructed simply of actual pages from a copy of Now is Forever flush-mounted to plywood panels, creating a compelling visual narrative of the travelogue of images Ari shot around the world.
The event also highlighted “Moroso Crew”, a 60-minute cinema vérité documentary about illegal drag racing in Brooklyn and the Bronx that Ari shot in 1992. The film was projected onto a backdrop encompassing the Project Space storefront window, making it visible to both guests at Project Space and onlookers on La Brea Avenue.
Good company in attendance included Aaron Rose, Keith Hufnagel of HUF, Curated by Arkitip featured artist C.R. Stecyk III and artist Michael Leon.
Thanks to all who came out and to Ari for all his work on the product collaboration and the exhibition!
“Now is Forever” will be featured at Project Space through October 15.
