The Standard, Hollywood
Opening Reception, December 14

California artists Steven Harrington and Justin Krietemeyer have brought the magic of a vibe-y winter wonderland to The Standard, Hollywood for their  “Auroraborealis” residency, which runs through mid-February. Their colorful lobby installation exemplifies the duo’s complementary mark making, with neon geodes, bold paintings, and larger-than-life friendship bracelets radiating cosmic greetings. Outside, the hotel’s exterior has been transformed with a confetti-like snowfall of wacky graphics, a true blizzard of celebration. The residence kicks off this Friday with an opening reception in the Cactus Lounge. Come hang, hug, drink for free (beer & wine from 8 p.m.– 10 p.m.), and revel in  the joy of a Cali-cool winter.

There’s a timeless quality to his playful yet contemplative work, which is inspired by California’s mystique, vastly diverse landscape, and thriving mix of cultures. Embracing a multimedia approach, Harrington’s portfolio includes large-scale installations made of plaster and stone, handscreened prints, limited-edition books, skateboards, and sculptures. He has exhibited artwork in Los Angeles, New York, Paris, Berlin, Milan, Barcelona, Tokyo, San Francisco, Chicago, Philadelphia, Montreal, Melbourne, and Dallas.
