If you looked at my Instagram lately, you would notice a few photos that were very avant garde and those that has been following my instastory on a regular basis knows that I had visited a new art exhibit in LA that is gearing up a lot of hype and celeb and artists have frequented and posted on their Insta. The 14th Factory is an exhibit consists of multi-media installations and an experience beyond art form.
Even before you enter the exhibit, the exterior looks unassuming and almost like a warehouse painted all black with large Japanese character painted outside. Once you enter, it is like a mythic universe created collaboratively through video, installation, sculpture, sound, paintings, and live experiences. Perhaps the two most popular areas are the replica of late Stanley Kubric’s 2001: A Space Odyssey room and the Pitch Fork installation.
The original set for “the room” in Stanley Kubric’s cult classic was destroyed and re-created by artist Simon Birch. I can’t even describe the surreal feeling just walking into this replica room lite from underneath by hundreds and thousands of LED lights. Shoes were not allowed inside the room, but I had to carry my green Gucci heels in as a prop for color. The pitch fork installation was something that is both fascinating and frightening at the same time. I can assure you that while I was standing/lying underneath it, I hoped that there’d be no earthquake.
The rest of the exhibits were all equally engaging and incredible. From the movie short that wrecked a real Ferrari to the crown room filled with hundreds of crowns made form various medias, each exhibit room and piece was so fresh and interesting. I was so inspired by this entire experience and couldn’t wait to show you guys. Of course, nothing is as good as a visit yourself so if you are in LA, def take a little bit of time and try to see this. I’ve listed the ticketing information below.
As for my outfit, I head already seen some of the photos posted from the exhibit and really want to dress for the part as well so I wore a long Shirt Dress from Tularosa and used a Corset Belt to cinch the waist. It’s my artistic take on the exhibit I am about to experience, kind of like an homage to all the artists that put an effort into their creation, I like to put some effort to dress for museum exhibits as well. You can see my last museum review of The Broad HERE. Hope you enjoyed this virtual tour of the exhibit and please do take the time and see for yourself if you are local!
