Boombox Creators is a tribute to the boombox. This exhibition features original, design blueprints for boomboxes that never went into production, paintings and sculpture inspired by them, photographs from the era, and of course, the boxes themselves. The boomboxes featured hail from three continents and include fully-functioning pieces at a full spectrum of pricing, from a simple, dual cassette Emerson to the same model Sharp HK9000 that Fab Five Freddy donated to the Smithsonian. We’ll also have a selection of rare Walkman, 8-track players, super dope mix tapes and other great, original issue cassettes.
La Luz de Jesus Gallery is located inside the Soap Plant / WACKO complex, widely regarded as the greatest gift store in Los Angeles, if not the world. As such, this is basically ground zero for holiday shoppers. This December, we’re hosting a month long Pop-Up show of new work that can be bought directly from the walls for immediate shipping and gifting and at prices low enough to diminish the guilt of self-gifting. More than a mere extension of our Art in the Hallway collection, we approached 20 of our favorite artists and asked them to create multiple pieces priced $400 or less specifically for this event. The artists in this show are among the first people to sellout in our group shows, and many have larger exhibitions booked elsewhere in the upcoming months–making this a prime opportunity to get their work under our special one-time price ceiling.

Set in a warped time in maybe-Europe / maybe the Americas, IF THE IMPOSSIBLE WERE THEN POSSIBLE is the story of a girl, Lenah (Blake Harrisson) who is diagnosed by a witch doctor (Wyatt Bunce) with a misunderstood bacterial infection.
Given instructions to resort to the emotional afflictions of her past in order to cure herself of her illness, Lenah becomes obsessively reflective of her relationship with her deceased father (Johan Stein) and rogue mother (Rachel Amundson).
The tonality of IF THE IMPOSSIBLE WERE THEN POSSIBLE is largely emotionally parodical. However; these parodies extend beyond themselves to reveal, ultimately, irrevocable truths and honest feelings.
