LA Diary: Maximilian Wiedemann x Fabien Castanier Gallery

Style :

Fabien Castanier Gallery is one of LA's most progressive and exciting spaces and is hosting a superb show by British pop- art sensation Maximilian Wiedemann titled “Pump Up the Valium”. Attended by Robert, LSoD's LA Writer, the exhibition runs for three weeks and will feature brand new works by German-born London-based Wiedemann, including collaborative pieces with mega celebrity photographer, Tyler Shields.

The exhibition will feature a range of mixed media on canvas, silkscreens, neon sculptures, stenciled artworks and several spectacular installations. The show represents Wiedemann’s philosophy about fame, money and celebrity status - a commentary on all things Hollywood.

It’s about pills, and beauty, and vanity, and women taking blades to their faces,” says Wiedemann, who will be incorporating 25,000 pills into his new works. Focusing on status symbols, the interplay of sex and money in contemporary society and America’s obsession with “celebrity and media hungry bitches”, there is not a more appropriate location for Wiedemann’s West Coast debut than Los Angeles.

The exhibtion is on now until June 26th. Check it out!
