Tristan Eaton: All At Once
Opening, Fri, Jul 16 
Long Beach Museum of Art
2300 East Ocean Boulevard
Long Beach, CA 90803

The Long Beach Museum of Art is thrilled to announce Tristan Eaton: All At Once, a 25-year retrospective of the Los Angeles native’s work. Tristan Eaton began pursuing street art as a teenager, painting everything from billboards to dumpsters in the urban landscapes of the cities where he lived—from London to New York City. After growing up on comic books, graffiti and skateboard culture, Eaton designed his first toy for Fisher-Price at the age of 18 and soon became a driving force in the world of Art Toys, designing the Dunny and Munny figures for Kidrobot.

In 2004, Eaton founded Thunderdog Studios, a leader in advertising and commercial-art spheres, with regular commissions from a roster of clients including Nike, Versace, Disney, former President Barack Obama, and Elon Musk and SpaceX. Triston Eaton: All At Once will debut at the Long Beach Museum of Art and showcase 25 years of work by the artist, including street art, illustration, rock poster design and printmaking.

4217 W. Jefferson Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA 90016
Group show based on the #ThinispaceHappyPlace contest we held during Covid-19 lockdown in summer of 2020. We had over 300 creatives submit their version of their happy place, a place  that they escaped to, in order to survive mentally through the past year. We chose 21 of our favorite submissions and asked them to each submit a work measuring 30x30cm that kept with the theme of the original contest. Be happy. Thinkspace Projects is thrilled to present Evoca1’s debut west coast solo show.

‘Sanctuary’ is a series that embodies Evoca1’s agenda to merge art and humanity into a single creation. With photorealistic works that have a delicate quality, he effortlessly conveys the nuances of human life, creating scenes of human life and emotion. Thinkspace Projects presents Tran Nguyen’s fifth solo show with the gallery. ‘Remedy’ is a collection of work focusing on the complicated relationship between humans and nature. With striking paintings and illustrations that create a balance between the soft and beautiful and the borderline haunting, ‘Remedy’ creates a utopian world where a small human population and a variety of flora and fauna coexist in a symbiotic relationship, giving way to magical species and fantastical visuals.

Brassroots District: Live in the Lot Summer ‘73 is an immersive music experience that transports audiences to the heyday of LA’s legendary funk music scene. While a bangin’ 9-piece funk band plays a full concert live onstage, a story unfolds throughout the venue, pulling audience members to the very center of the action.

"Signing up for Codename makes you a new recruit with the Bureau for the Unexplained and Non-Normal (B.U.N.). As an agent, you’ll be dealing with aliens, cults, and all manner of sci-fi/horror/fantasy fare. The best part is that more missions are forthcoming, unlocking new menu items and bonus content as you level up, so there’s a reward for investing in the story and maintaining your online agent profile. It’s also a solid choice for families looking for a game night that comes with dinner."
