Poison Valley An Exhibition by Land

Busy-Being is proud to present "Poison Valley" a solo exhibition by Ryan Rhodes and Caleb Owen Everitt, the Austin based design duo better known as the "LAND". This will the first time the pair have exhibited in Los Angeles and comes just off the heels of their recent Tokyo exhibition with Deus ex Machina. 

Poison Valley is a primitive pursuit, depicting humanity's spiritual manifestations expressed throughout history. The emblematic work confronts elemental questions concerning nature, animals and mankind’s struggle for understanding. Visualize the first moment of human awareness, and the proceeding depictions of abstract thought. The consciousness of a beginning, end, and the mortality existing between.

Alongside the exhibition will be a Texas Makers Market featuring goods by: Cobra Rock Boot Company / Fort Lonesome / Botanicals Folklorica / Ana Klausmann / Traveller Denim Co. / Mason McFee / Fortuna Monsoon / Marfa Brands / Miranda Bennett Studio / Folk Fibers / and PFAU. Fort Lonesome will be on site with her chain stitch machine to do LAND-specific stitching at the opening, and a special print in conjunction with exhibition will be released with Poster Child Prints on the opening night as well!
