Pacific Design Center’s winter art season launch, which is marked by a public opening reception on Friday, January 22nd from 5 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. PDC’s national arts program, designLAb, is excited to debut a series of 16 cutting-edge arts, architecture & design, sound and taste exhibitions, and the opening reception will feature several one-night-only performances. MOCA PDC opens the same night with a trailblazing contemporary photography exhibition, Catherine Opie: 700 Nimes Road (for MOCA Members at 7 p.m.).
Celebrating its fifth year, Pacific Design Center’s national arts program designLAb, founded and overseen by art curator Helen Varola, supports Los Angeles’ dynamic artist community with its seasonal presentations, which span a variety of artistic disciplines. designLAb’s opening event will showcase 16 cutting-edge exhibitions on view in the PDC’s Blue Building Lobby and Second Floor Galleries. The evening’s highlights include several one-night-only performances: Industry Gallery, (recently named in Art + Auction’s Power 100), presents Steve Boyer’s Tasting Bar with samplings of exotic, highly-concentrated bitters in the context of his ongoing digital exhibit, Drawing Agents. LA-based artist Steve Roden, who hopscotches between paintings, installations and sound works will create a one-hour live performance beginning at 8 p.m. at Young Projects Gallery. For this special occasion, Roden will perform an improvised sound piece to Stas Orlovski’s animation, Skazka, using a modular synthesizer that incorporates “found” audio materials.

DesignLAb’s winter exhibition series includes Christopher W. Mount Gallery’s early photographs by Bernd and Hilla Becher, acclaimed German photographers who influenced a new generation of artists as well as Drawings Lie, the first commercial debut of work by architectural visionary, Bryan Cantley. Cantor Fine Art presents 3D portraits by contemporary artists Andrew Myers, Michael Mapes and Kerry Miller. CMay Gallery exhibits works by mixed media artists Bahk Seon Ghi, Shana Mabari and a video piece from the gallery’s collection by Connie Samaras. Anthony James Studio presents his own evocative, new large-scale sculpture. Thomas Paul Fine Art will show new works by Parisian abstract figurative painter, Nushka. Mary Younakof showcases videos from her recent live performance entitled “RGB.”
