Rob Pruitt's Flea Market
LAND will present the ninth iteration of Rob Pruitt’s Flea Market, a nomadic concept that has taken place across the globe, from February 13-14, 2016 in Downtown Los Angeles.
The premise is simple: Pruitt and LAND invite the top artists and tastemakers in Los Angeles to participate in a traditional-style flea market, making their wares available for sale to the public. Past examples of flea market offerings include Martha Stewart's grab bags, a slew of coffee mugs emblazoned with portraits of Aida from Alex Katz, Sylvia Miles’ boots she wore in Midnight Cowboy, Haim Steinbach's accouterments for a reptile tank, and a real William Wegman drawing from a New York museum curator for $20. There have also been fortune tellers, Rosy Brown’s homemade lemonade, and in the 2007 edition at Frieze London, Sam Taylor Wood shot portraits of visitors with Pruitt dressed in a panda costume.
The vendors will be accompanied by food/drink, music, and performances for a weekend celebrating the vibrant artistic community of Los Angeles.
The special preview will be on Friday, February 12, 2016 from 6-9pm, and open on Saturday, February 13 and Sunday, February 14 from 12pm-7pm.
