The Avant-Garde Diaries hosts their 2nd exhibit in L.A.

We were guests of Mercedes-Benz last night at their Transmission LA: AV CLUB exhibit, and the show was by all means a great success. As we explained in our interview with Mike D, who is curating the event, the array of artist involved is impressive (including Peter Coffin, Benjamin Jones, Mike Mills, Tom Sachs, Sage Vaughn, Public Fiction, Still House Group and more). But not only was the art great, and MOCA packed to the rafters, but chef Roy Choi’s Kogi Foodtruck supplied endless trays of their delicious short rib tacos. Plus there was the Mercedes-Benz “CSC” Concept Style Coupe “revealed”, although the leak from last week may have taken a bit of the impact off its unveiling (and it is now officially called the CLA). Oh, and the live performance by Santigold was as amazing as billed. Part of the Avant-Garde Diaries events, which began last year in Berlin (curated by designer Raf Simons), the Transmission LA: AV CLUB was created by Mercedes-Benz to foster art globally. The show is free to the public, and is well worth attending if you live in the Los Angeles area. If you don’t have time to go, watch the video below hosted by Mike D and get a quick view of the exhibit…
