ARTBOOK @ Art Platform Los Angeles, 2011

From September 30 – October 3, ARTBOOK | D.A.P. took part in the inaugural Art Platform Los Angeles art fair at the L.A. Mart. The fair opened in tandem with Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. 1945–1980, a six-month-long initiative with simultaneous exhibitions and programs at an unprecedented 60 cultural institutions across Southern California, celebrating postwar work and the L.A. art scene from the 40s through the 80s. Fair organizer Adam Gross aspired for the fair to "assist in explaining Los Angeles’ rich history of art making while celebrating the vibrancy of the city’s current art world."
Our booth featured Southern California Beat-scene chronicler Charles Brittin's period photographs and Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari's Toilet Paper. Friends, artists, photographers, and a few celebrities stopped by our booth—including Alec Soth, Catherine Opie, Paul McCarthy (who modeled his Cattelan tote), Piero Golia, Mungo Thompson, Lisa Loeb and Rosanna Arquette.
