While the VonTundra project was going down at A-Z West the “Specific Apartment” was the main feature at the HDTS HQ about a mile away in downtown Joshua Tree. Specific is a really great new gallery/shop on Beverly in Los Angeles curated by Brooks Hudson Thomas.
Brooks created an installation of the “Specific Apartment” in the back room at the HDTS HQ. The HDTS HQ is already evolving into what I like to call a “Life Enhancement Shop” – and it was exiting to see the space chock full of accouterments for living.
There were some funky little paintings on fabric and cardboard by Sean Brian Mc Donald that I loved, a walnut covered plywood chair and table set by Jalal Poehlman with really nice details (check out the legs in the image above), a sweet striped quilt by Denyse Schmidt and a bunch of other really great objects including an audio cabinet by todosomething that was DJed for the Saturday night event.
