RAW: A New Exhibition of Vintage in the LCDQ
RAW, a new exhibition from antiquarians Gary Gibson and Lee Stanton, is now on display in the La Cienega Design Quarter.
The exhibition is all about furniture and antique pieces that embrace the patina that occurs with the passage of time as a statement of beauty. Celebrating age and imperfection, Gibson and Stanton showcase antiques and objects in their “purest state,” marked by patina and signs of wear and tear that add texture and beauty to their surroundings.
RAW challenges the notion that age comes before or after beauty, and proclaims that age is beauty. “The patina from age,” says Stanton, “adds a sense of familiarity, just as a gentle smile of a favorite aunt, uncle or grandparent.”
The exhibition runs until January 1, 2016. Due to the upcoming holidays, contact the showroom for hours at firstname.lastname@example.org / 310-855-9800.
