QL x Sonnenzimmer pop up: Graphic Arts Future Tour
A one day event at The Quite Life
Chicago-based studio Sonnenzimmer lands in L.A.’s historic Highland Park neighborhood for a one day pop-up shop. Artists Nick Butcher and Nadine Nakanishi will bring a selection of their idiosyncratic collaborative prints, posters, and publications to The Quiet Life’s brand new flagship store. Butcher will perform a special set of music generated from their latest book & LP, Graphic Arts Future.
To commemorate the event, The Quiet Life and Sonnenzimmer will release a limited edition T-shirt capsule, made up of two designs on a short sleeve and a long sleeve t shirt in several colour options. This is Sonnenzimmer’s third stop on their Graphic Arts Future Tour. Previous stops have been at Texas State University in San Marcos and London Centre for Book Arts in the UK. Come on out and get real about Graphic Art!
When: Saturday, 23, 2016 from 1 – 4 p.m.
Where: The Quite Life Store, 5627 N Figueroa St, Los Angeles, CA 90042
