Ten days ago, we shared HVW8 Gallery's travel log from Milan, where they had the first of two shows in a traveling exhibition titled "Home and Away." LA-based HVW8 artists Alessandro Moroder, Hassan Rahim, and Lisa Leone are bringing their work to an international audience for the first time, and their second show happened last week in Amsterdam. Check out their second entry below, this time from Amsterdamn, and check HVW8.com for more photos and videos in the coming days.
Text below by HVW8 founder, Tyler Gibney, and images are by Hassan Rahim and Tyler Gibney.
"After a great opening/experience in Milan at the Patricia Armocida Gallery we arrived in Amsterdam."
"Amsterdam is an amazing city."
"We had a beautiful apartment in the Jordaan area."
"We went to the Andeken Gallery and started to install the "Home and Away" Exhibition. Above is work by Lisa Leone."
"After, we went for a visit to the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam. We got to view a few amazing constructivist pieces from the father of today's Graphic Design. This piece above is by Malevich (Surpremus No. 50, 1918).
"...and this above is by El Lissitzky; it's a Suprematist composition (Study for Wall Painting, 1919)"
"After we went out for a traditional Dutch dinner."
"Later, we went down and hooked up with Gee from Patta at Red Light Radio. Femke from My Little Underground was spinning. Red Light Radio is amazing project they have set up in the Red Light District were they stream live radio in the window in the district."
"And after linked with best mate and HVW8 Gallery Alumni Parra for a few drinks."
