ForYourArt Announces New Tote Bag Being Distributed at Frieze New York
In anticipation of the Venice Beach Biennial taking place July 13-15, 2012 as part of MADE IN L.A., ForYourArt and the Hammer Museum have produced a special edition tote bag to be distributed during Frieze New York.
The tote bags feature a recreation of boardwalk artist Arthure Moore’s (“Art”) Funky Pussy painting and will be available at select galleries in Chelsea and Downtown and will also be given out at the Coolhaus truck during the Downtown Gallery Night on Sunday, May 6th from 7-9pm. During the event Coolhaus, an L.A. favorite, will distribute free ice cream sandwiches, including a special vegan “Venice Beach Biennial Sandwich” (Carrot Cake Cookie with Vanilla Pear Sorbet).
For the Venice Beach Biennial, the Venice Beach boardwalk will become a readymade exhibition space inspired by the Arsenale at the “real” Venice Biennale. Over the course of the weekend, 40 to 50 artists will collaborate with boardwalk artists, creating new bodies of work, displaying site-specific sculptures and/or installations, and presenting performances along the boardwalk.
