“ZERO DOWN” is a festive one-night art event taking place on Saturday, May 31,
2014, in the studios and on the premises of the 1019WEST Artists Studio Building on the
Inglewood-Westchester border, two blocks west of the 405. This year the multi-disciplinary artists from 1019WEST team up with artists from the Beacon Arts Building and guest performance artists to bring alive the entire site for an exciting evening of performance art, music, group exhibition, installations, and open studios staged at the massive retrofit building.
1019WEST appeared on the LA art scene three years ago to exceptional acclaim within the arts community, and is situated in an area that is now known as one of the burgeoning art scenes in LA.
More than 35 artists’ studios at 1019WEST will be open to the public from 5:00-9:00 p.m., while
performance artists will be juxtaposed throughout the site from 6:00-8:00 p.m. A group show
and installations of 1019West and Beacon Arts Building artists will be exhibited in the hallways
and around the site.
Food and drinks will be available throughout the evening, and visitors will find ample street
parking. Walk-in entrance only on West Manchester and Hindry. Several art models from
The Gallery Girls will act as hostesses for the evening.
“It’s always interesting visiting with the artists here at 1019 West Manchester because
everybody is unique and there’s no single style or point of view. You can tell who is here working
on art from the cars in the parking lot, which is never empty. This artist’s campus is right on
to the glide path for LAX which lends it an air of never ending industry. Plus, there is an LA
sort of logic to having art studios in an old automobile dealership,” said Scott Grieger, Artist.
