Opening on June 1, FLUTTER is an innovative, immersive art experience that’s designed for anyone in search of an environment that evokes pure happiness and joy. Inspired by the theme “Where Art and Happiness Meet,” FLUTTER is a ticketed exhibition with installations that will run for six months before the next phase of artists are introduced. Suitable for visitors of all ages, FLUTTER is a sensory journey spanning multiple mediums, including Virtual Reality, projection mapping, Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response (ASMR), climbable furniture as well as a giant sphinx, DayGlo lighting and architectural structures.
The inaugural installation includes the work of 15 contemporary artists, including Candy Chang, Cyril Lancelin of Town & Concrete, Elise Peterson, Guillermo Santoma (presented by etage projects), Jacolby Satterwhite, Jillian Mayer, Katie Stout, Leah Guadagnoli, digital media duo Laia Cabrera and Isabelle Duverger (in collaboration with Aniol Saurina Masó), Liz Collins, Saya Woolfalk, as well as Job Piston in collaboration with the award-winning architecture studio, Charlap Hyman & Herrero along with NAR, the NYC-based trans producer, musician and DJ widely known for his work with Rihanna’s Fenty collection. Each artist will take over a space within FLUTTER’s 1920s Art Deco space (217 S La Brea Ave, Los Angeles 90036) with one mantra in mind – the play-date.
A percentage of FLUTTER proceeds will be donated to the Born This Way Foundation, founded in 2012 by Lady Gaga and her mother Cynthia Germanotta to support the wellness of young people and empower them to create a kinder and braver world. Each participating artist will donate artwork to be auctioned in November 2019 with all proceeds going to the non-profit organization.
