Opening this Thursday, April 14, Kathy Grayson from NYC’s The Hole has curated a group exhibition at Royal/T, featuring over 30 street art-influenced works from international artists including Shepard Fairey, Ben Jones, avaf, and Murakami—which all re-imagine and redefine the image of the human face. “The ‘FACEMAKER’ exhibit is particularly exciting and relevant because as people, we’re instinctively wired to see faces in everything—from paintings and drawings, to sculptures and videos,” adds Grayson. “Today’s young artists are approaching this simple concept in a way that challenges our assumptions and makes us consider the face in new ways. We hope this show will open peoples’ eyes to a whole new understanding of creative interpretation of the face. To me, Culver City is the new art neighborhood in Los Angeles where all the excitement is, and Royal/T, with its innovative art exhibitions and open interactive environment, is the perfect place to showcase these interdisciplinary artists.”

The exhibition will coincide with the opening of “Art in the Streets” exhibit at MoCA by Jeffrey Deitch. Grayson is a painter, writer, curator, and was the former Director for Deitch Projects. For more information on the exhibit visit www.royal-t.org .
