Opening Reception: Saturday, April 28th • 8PM – 10 PM
There is no future. We have evicted ourselves from our own cities, rendered our agriculture poisonous, criminalized the poor, aggrandized the rich, honored the stupid and ridiculed the intelligent…I have no solutions, no wisdom to offer…Whilst Rome burns, I take up my little chisel and I carve a panoramic apocalypse of my own…and if you want to see it, you’re more than welcome. – Stanley Donwood, 2012
SUBLIMINAL PROJECTS is pleased to announce Lost Angeles, a solo exhibition of art by British artist Stanley Donwood.
Lost Angeles will feature a new body of work where Donwood turns his poignant perception on the impact of current societal trends and behavior towards Los Angeles. His visual meditation on society envelopes viewers in a beautifully, graphic landscape of impending doom. The fluid black and white scene resonates with honesty and forewarning. True to form, Donwood once again succeeds in giving flawless design to his version of our tragically flawed future.
On display will be an 18-foot apocalyptic panorama of the City of Angels being destroyed by fire, flood and meteor storm. Originally carved into 18 separate panels of linoleum then hand burnished onto Japanese Kozo paper, the never-before-seen, limited edition print was inspired by subject matter similar to Donwood’s 2006 work titled London Views.

Followed up with news that there would be a Atoms for Peace DJ Set at Transmission LA tonight as of 6-10pm. It’s known that both Thom Yorke and Nigel Godrich will be DJing for this event.
If your lucky enough to find yourself in L.A tonight you can reserve a ticket here before they’re all gone.
Chieftan Mew’s had previously tweeted about Lost Angeles on August 15th, 2011 while Stanley was in the process of working on the print, you can read more about it and Lost Angeles here.
