Los Angeles' position in the contemporary art market has continually expanded, and with it, the influence of its artists and galleries has, too. HVW8 Gallery in LA has been at the forefront of this ascent, existing at the intersection of art, music, and design. This month, they're bringing the work of Alessandro Moroder, Hassan Rahim, and Lisa Leone to Milan and Amsterdam for their European debuts in an exhibition titled "Home and Away."

Alessandro Moroder's paintings and installations examining masculinity, Hassan Rahim's collages and sculptures exploring nostalgia and celebrity, and Lisa Leone's iconic images of early hip-hop artists and culture are bringing freshness and newness to contemporary art. We'll post exclusive updates about their travels in the coming weeks.
