Please join us for the Downtown Art Walk debut of Coral Forest, an interactive art installation by Los Angeles-based artist Doron Gazit, on Thursday, July 14th, 2016.
Coral Forest Artist Reception with Doron Gazit
Thursday, July 14, 2016
Coral Forest is an interactive installation made up of 10 giant “sea forms” that are moved and rearranged to create a new shape every time the installation is displayed. The inflatable art uses air as a medium and explores how people interact with the element. The inflatables were inspired by the Fashion District and made of fabric that was hand dyed to create the impression of texture. The public is invited to walk through, touch, and take selfies with the art.
Coral Forest is part of the Fashion District’s space activation initiative. Our goal is to take ordinary public spaces and use art and culture to bring the community together around public space. In doing so, we hope to illustrate the full potential of these streets and show what a truly vibrant Downtown L.A. community looks like.
Coral Forest was commissioned by the LA Fashion District Business Improvement District (BID) and curated by Carmen Zella of NOW Art LA. Coral Forest is a mobile art piece and will be installed at various locations throughout the LA Fashion District this summer. In the meantime, it will be on display Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at The Wall Farmer’s Market, between 7th and 8th Streets in the LA Flower District.
