Halloween Update: Halloween Art

GARY BASEMAN's NIGHTMARES of Halloweens past

OPENING PARTYSaturday, October 20th 7pm – 10pm

EXhibition runs
October 20th - November 24th

"This Halloween, vintage hauntings and creepy DIY costumes come to KK Gallery with a very special show from one of L.A.’s most prolific artists.
Gary Baseman opens up his vault and showcases for the first time a selection from his vintage Halloween photo collection dating back to 1915. Baseman’s collection of over 1500 photographs has been the inspiration for a series of haunting original paintings, special edition prints, installations and videos. This multi-media exhibit will celebrate not only Baseman’s favorite holiday, but the debut show of the newly founded KK Gallery on Chung King Road in Los Angeles' Chinatown Arts District.
Opening night will have the artist’s presence and a special performance by Nightmare and The Cat."

"Talented couple Mike Yamada and Victoria Ying have been collaborating on animation-inspired illustrations for some time. Most recently, the duo set out on a book project that successfully funded more than ten times their original goal. "Curiosities: An Illustrated History of Ancestral Oddity" is the tale of a brother and sister who inherit an old, mysterious mansion and all of the odd relics that are housed inside within. In celebration of the book's release, the couple has teamed up with Nucleus to present a very curious exhibition, indeed! Over 40 talented artists have imagined themselves exploring the oddities and creatures that one may discover in an ancient, spooky mansion. "
