MiXTAPE LOS ANGELES: CURATED BY JESSICKA ADDAMS AND BRIAN WAKIL
MiXTAPE LA documents the effect of music on the process of creation, asking each participating artist to create a piece titled after a song, artist, or band that has inspired or influenced his/her creative process. Curators Jessicka Addams and Brian Wakil have arranged the selections into a single dialogue between 24 fine artists and their musical muses, and in turn a conversation has been created between the artists themselves about the relationship between their art and music.
All MiXTAPE artwork is available for purchase, a portion of the proceeds will go to Downtown Dog Rescue and Stray Cat Alliance. We will be adding more artwork as images become available, please check back soon to view available works by all artists in the show.
