Brandon Shigeta "ARTCUBE" Exhibition @ Little Tokyo Design Week Preview

Resident HYPEBEAST photographer Brandon Shigeta will exhibit a new body of work next month at

Resident HYPEBEAST photographer Brandon Shigeta will exhibit a new body of work next month at Little Tokyo Design Week in Los Angeles. Titled “ARTCUBE,” his show will present copious amounts of imagery stacked randomly to create what could potentially be the largest photographic exhibition ever. Approximately 65,000 postcards based on 80 images will further be available for visitors as souvenirs. The exhibition will begin on July 13 with an opening night followed by a four-day showing from July 14 till July 17.

ARTCUBE contains a novel interactive sculpture comprising photographs of the artistic processes and techniques captured by Brandon Shigeta. Stacked into random arrays forming a single cubic massing the sculpture includes hidden signed cards and custom artwork on the surface of the postcards by artists. Perhaps qualifying the exhibit as the heaviest photographic exhibit ever, the sculpture consists of approximately 65,000 postcards of approximately 80 various images to be removed by visitors as souvenirs. The sculpture provides visitors with participatory spatial and tactile experiences in which they remove their favorite images to change the overall form of the mass to reveal new images below. A ceiling mounted camera will record a time-lapse image stream of the changing topography of the top of the sculptural surface over the course of the show.

ARTCUBE is a concentrated agglomeration of images that form narratives of artistic processes, assemblages and details like brush strokes. Those images also reveal their specific, sometimes even illegal, locations in city space and time. Ephemeral at their origin these artistic acts will be further dissolved by ARTCUBE‘s visitors into a flow of the fast paced and energetic cycles of aesthetic metropolitan consumption and production. They will become postcards from the present to a wonderfully fictional future city.
