Long Beach, CA (PRWEB) May 25, 2006
Robert Clark, curator, and his brother, director and CEO Tom Clark, of the 23Project art gallery on Linden are hosting a preview opening of 'God Doesn't Blink' on Saturday, May 27th and 7:00 P.M. This event will feature the works of world famous Austrian actionist Hermann Nitsch, avant garde composer and artist Karlheinz Stockhausen, American neo-realist Jane Smalldone, the late pop artist Denny Dent, and Southern California's pop-surrealist photographer Tiffany, who is continuing her 'Debauched Pink' series which debuted earlier this year in Long Beach.
This opening marks an important milestone for the East Village Arts District, as it is the first investment level arts gallery to move into the area. It is a bold and risky venture with which the Clark brothers plan to put Long Beach on the national and international art radar. A successful 'destination' gallery will change the face of the East Village Arts District.
The evenings events will begin with music by Karlheinz Stockhausen, performing 'Hymnem First Region' to be followed from 8 to 9:15 by a film documentary by Hermann Nitsch entitled 'Six Day Play, Day Five'. Afterwards, the gallery will be opened for viewing. Catering will be provided by LaMuse Cafe'.
A note of caution to the faint of heart, the art and artists represented are as risky, thought-provoking and provocative as the idea of making Long Beach an internationally known arts destination.
The 23Project Gallery is located at 132 Linden Avenue in downtown Long Beach. For more information, contact Robert Clark at 562-355-7941.
