Postcard From L.A.: A Weekend Of Openings With Laure Heriard Dubreuil And Aaron Young

-------

The Webster’s Laure Heriard Dubreuil and fiancé Aaron Young were in L.A. for the weekend for the opening of two shows featuring Young’s art: No Fucking Way, his solo show at The Company Gallery, and Rebel, the James Franco-curated homage to Rebel Without a Cause at MOCA. (For more on Rebel, check out our coverage of the opening party and our Q&A with Franco.) Laure sent back a few shots from her trip, which included plenty of art, plenty of parties, and (naturally) a little L.A. vintage shopping. Throughout, Dubreuil wears a dress by The Webster for Target. She’s encouraging readers to email photos of themselves wearing the collection to socialmedia@thewebstermiami.com.

Aaron and I arrived in L.A. on Friday morning for Aaron’s openings: a solo one at The Company on Friday night and a group one at MOCA on Saturday. We stayed at the Chateau Marmont, which is a key place this particular weekend, as it is basically the set for Saturday’s Rebel show at MOCA. It didn’t hurt that they had the latest Porsche convertible to rent for the weekend, either.

Aaron’s solo show at The Company Gallery is called No Fucking Way and it’s about what he calls “tragic girls that have all been acting in their lives one way or another” (he jokes that it’s site-specific to L.A.). All the paintings are in the colors of the American flag and the canvases are the shape of folded flags. He painted women like Heidi Montag after all of her plastic surgeries posing in an American flag bikini, and Tonya Harding and Nancy Kerrigan posing wrapped up in the flag before the pipe beating incident. After Aaron’s opening, we all went to the opening of Paul and Damon McCarthy’s Rebel Dabble Babble, a continuation of their pieces from James Franco’s Rebel show at MOCA. After that, it was downtown to UMAMIcatessen for a truffle burger before calling it a night.

Saturday morning we went to the MOCA space for Aaron’s press conference and interviews (he was wearing his The Webster at Target T-shirt for good luck!). We met up with James Franco, who curated the show. He told me he wanted to collaborate with artists he looks up to, who have dealt with film in their careers: Paul McCarthy and Aaron; there was Harmony Korine, Ed Ruscha, Terry Richardson, and Douglas Gordon.

Proenza Schouler Sets Up At The Guggenheim

-------

To mark the closing of the Guggenheim Museum’s Maurizio Cattelan: All exhibition (and Cattelan’s retirement from art making), Proenza Schouler’s Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez are showing their Harmony Korine films, Snowballs and Act da Fool, at the museum’s Peter B. Lewis Theater tomorrow. (Style.com shared the exclusive still shots from their latest collaboration in September before the short screened in Paris.)

“We love how Harmony twists things and makes them his own,” the designers told Style.com at the Paris screening’s after-party. “We let him take our ideas and sift them in his own little ‘Harmony’ way. It’s a crapshoot—but it’s always a nice surprise.”

Tomorrow, their films will be shown as part of a seven-hour multidisciplinary program, called The Last Word, along with works by over 30 other artists, filmmakers, musicians, and dancers. Admission to the weekend event, kicking off at 6p.m., is pay what you wish.

Let It Schouler

-------

“I used to know an old guy who was mostly blind, he kept a gun in the freezer, and breathed through a machine at night,” says Harmony Korine. The cult filmmaker goes on to tell a twisted tale involving goats, the woods, and young women being seduced by the older man—all part of the theme for his new four-minute short film, Snowballs, for Proenza Schouler. “When I was 13 I saw the old man turn into a goat and run around the living room,” says Korine. “I know it sounds strange, but it was real ’cause he licked my face.”

For his second collaboration with Proenza (his last work was a short called Act da Fool), Korine injected the Southwestern elements from the Fall 2011 collection into his dark, perverse story. Snowballs screens tonight in Paris, but Style.com has the exclusive first look at stills from the short.

To see the full film, check it out on ProenzaSchouler.com tonight.

To Gallery Hop Or To Shop?
At Agnès B., No Need To Choose

-------


“It’s my relationship with New York that I am trying to show through the art,” Agnès Troublé said Friday night at her new Soho gallery-slash-boutique. “I wanted to give my friends here an homage for the pleasure we have together.”

Those friends include artists and filmmakers Harmony Korine, Ryan McGinness, Dan Colen, and the late Louise Bourgeois. A carefully curated collection of brightly colored paintings and photographs by Troublé’s friends, set to change monthly, now covers the exposed brick walls of her Howard Street store—the 246th one worldwide. Works of art by the likes of José Parlá, Rostarr, and McGinness are also available in the more wearable form of limited-edition T-shirts, sold exclusively at the boutique.

Troublé, a major collector herself, has had a longstanding love affair with both art (“since 1983 in Paris, we have [had] a little gallery in Marseille”) and fashion. On Friday, the Paris-based designer saw the marriage of her two greatest passions. “It’s my life,” she said of art. “We have been doing this in a way for a long time, but not so visible as here. It’s normal̵2finally.”

Jewels By Angie, Tattoos Fit For Pilati, A Moo-rc Jacobs Christmas, And More…

Angelina Jolie is collaborating with former Asprey CEO Robert Procop—her longtime friend and jeweler—on a collection of fine pieces in “statement stones.” She “has a very classic style,” Procop insists. The celebrity-jewelry-design game is getting a little crowded lately, no? [WWD]

Speaking of accessories, tattoos are gaining ground as the new ones to have. T asked four noted artists—Marina Abramovic, Aaron Young, Harmony Korine, and Stefano Pilati’s own tattoo man, Mark Mahoney&8212;to suggest a few new designs. [T]
