Wild Art: Hollywood Roosevelt Launch Event

Tuesday, November 12th; 7-9 PM.

“I’m blown away by Wild Art. Some of the images are so refreshing and startling that they help you look at the everyday world again renewed and invigorated. Joachim Pissarro and David Carrier have created a wonderful book.”
Jeff Koons

From graffiti to extreme body art, ice sculpture, flash mobs, portraits made from bottle tops, dresses made from meat, paintings made by animals, light shows, carnivals and giant artworks that can only truly be appreciated from the air, WILD ART (Phaidon, $39.95, October 28, 2013) celebrates art forms that are anything but typical.

In the spirit of this exciting new publication, Phaidon Press has partnered with Thompson Hotels for a bicoastal book launch and exclusive tie-in promotions at Smyth Tribeca in New York and the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel in Los Angeles.
