LAMA & YHBHS partner to present a three-week interior showcase at the LAMA Showroom. Now open to the public, for 3 weeks, until the auction, Oct 9, 2011.
“David John of the acclaimed arts and interiors blog You Have Been Here Sometime (YHBHS) will design and style a temporary interior space, the first of its kind, at the LAMA showroom that will showcase a fresh and current perspective of Dorsoâ€™s lifelong collection. Utilizing David John’s skills as an interior designer, LAMA has invited this local California designer to create an intimate space that brings together the past and present, shining a light on how Modern Art and Design is viewed in todayâ€™s current art and interiors scene.
Collecting in Los Angeles 1945 – 1980 is an exhibit that explores the collecting practices of Richard Dorso and brings together important works that create a unique snapshot of the post-WWII Los Angeles art scene, all through the eyes of one collector.
The exhibit will conclude with a one-owner auction of The Collection of Richard Dorso featuring over 400 works of art spanning much of the 20th century. ”
