French L.A.-based artist Mambo wanted to have a show that would reflect on the many conversations he had with his fellow artists and friends, from Paris to Los Angeles, New York to Houston.This is how he generously imagined MINDSET, 6 artworks by 6 artists presented in the space of Lacen Project. A way to get going with the conversation, collaborative projects and friendship.
MINDSET presents the works of Mambo, 9th Concept, Dave Kinsey, Rahul Mitra, Xavier De Nauw and Mike Stilkey.
Join us for the exhibition opening and Tribute to vinyle party

“As far as I can remember, I have always enjoyed the creative effervescence generated between artists, in their collaborative work, but also through getting together to share food, music, travel and parties. I have experienced this convergence of energies with 9th Concept, Xavier De Nauw and Dave Kinsey in the past in Europe, with Rahul Mitra recently in Houston and expect it to happen again soon with Mike Stilkey in Los Angeles. What I like about these guys is that they all have strong personalities, well established styles and the ability to work together in mutual respect and humor, which makes it so much easier. These details may seem trivial at first, but they become very important over time.
It is difficult for an artist to grow without falling into the trap of excessive ego and bling-bling.
I always keep in mind a story about Jean Tinguely, who when looking for a welder to assist him, had placed an advertisement in the newspaper saying, "Looking for a very good welder weld who knows to play cards".
This is "L'état d'esprit" that I wish to carry out, because I'm pretty sure that's the secret to staying creative and living long.”  Mambo
