Dear Los Angeles,
When we first met you in 2007, your freedom, your kindness, your craziness, your entire spirit charmed and delighted and touched us, and we fell hopelessly in love. We believe in you. You are a dream, a powerful and chaotic art work, and we would like, in return, to show you our dream: The gallery is Courtesy. Our first exhibition will be inside of you, and will show you a reflection of your own beauty. The show is Ma prochaine vie. Like you, our first show is dispersed. Three different locations, with three different landscapes: The gallery Here is Elsewhere, the non-profit space ForYourArt, and the home of collector and artist Danny First. To see it all, one must travel, and be adventurous. Los Angeles, what can we say? You are our religion. Watch over us, guide us, and we will travel the world to spread your message. We will come back to pay our respects at the feet of your ocean and your hills. Smile as you witness our new life.
We are proud to present the second part of Ma Prochaine Vie at ForYourArt: The show is a beautiful day at the ocean with colors and light. ForYourArt produces
