SCION PRESENTS: FAIRYTALE OF BERLIN
Fairytale of Berlin, curated by Janine Bean and Matthias Bergemann from Janine Bean Gallery in Berlin, opens on January 17 at Scion's 4,500 square foot Installation L.A. Gallery in Culver City. The exhibition explores the legend of creative life within Berlin's sub-cultural niches.Â Berlin attracts artists with its substantial networkâ€”affordable apartments and studios, along with private and public international institutions eager to support artists of all backgrounds. The city's creative utopia, with its solid infrastructure as well as a stirring subculture, attracts artists from all over the world, and has become more than a myth. The show will look at the consequences, both good and bad, of what happens when aspiration and reality collide in this setting.
The opening reception takes place January 17, 7:00 PM â€“ 10:00 PM and will run through February 7 at the Scion Installation L.A. Gallery, 3521 Helms Ave. (at National), Culver City, CA 90232.
