Bag By Band Of Outsiders
Scott Sternberg of Band of Outsiders and Boy has always been one to think outside the box, but his latest collaboration is, at least in the literal sense, the exact opposite. For the Pacific Standard Time Performance and Public Art Festival, which kicks off tomorrow in Los Angeles, the designer was commissioned by ForYourArt to create a limited-edition tote as part of artist Liz Glynn’s Black Box performance space. For this exhibition, Glynn (who once rebuilt Rome in a day with her The 24-Hour Roman Reconstruction exhibit in 2008) created a place where “anything can and will happen unannounced,” according to a statement from the festival organizers. And Sternberg’s canvas tote, which will be handed out (for free) in the Black Box, doesn’t give any clues as to what’s going to happen, either. The bag reads: “I went to Liz Glynn’s Black Box thing where anything can happen and all I got was this lousy Band of Outsiders tote bag and a super informative ForYourArt map.”
Black Box will open nightly at 8 p.m. at 830 Highland Ave., L.A., from January 19-29. For more info, visit PacificStandardTimeFestival.org.
