Scion has a lot of cool sub-projects related to art going on. One of them is Installation Los Angeles, which is an ongoing audio/video/art forum. They have an event coming up this weekend in Los Angeles entitled “A Product of Design,” which has resulted in their posting a lot of the videos and projects that are going to be on display this weekend.
Above is one that I found particularly funny and perfect for The Fox Is Black: Gluekit’s “How To Design A Product To Be Put on Display In An Art Exhibition.” Gluekit are a Los Angeles based art duo that are Christopher and Kathleen Sledoba who are curating the weekend’s event. Their illustration work is amazing and, if you’ve read a magazine in the past two years, you have definitely seen their work. The video above is one of a few they have featured at A Product Of Design. This one is about getting something ready for display, as the title suggests. But, instead of the video prescribing directions on exhibition practices, it is instead this hilarious French infomercial for a pamphlet set of the same name. It’s really great and feels like something you would have caught on the television in the late seventies, to help you with your art career.
Take a minute to watch the video and, should you be in Los Angeles, be sure to RSVP for the event!
