Augustine Kofie and Jaybo Monk have been secretly working on new work for a one day show at Soze Gallery’s new Location in Los Angeles. The show titled “Conversations” focuses on recent studio sessions involving both artists. The talented Scott La Rockwell was able to document some of the work and released this video teaser for the show. Unconventional in approach, Soze Galley allows the artists to freely create and curate their collaboration. It is great to see a gallery allow true creative process take place. In a time when social media hype, PR and numerous outlets pushing a show and its agenda take precedence, it is nice to see the art take first priority. What is left is a one day show that culminates in new work from the artists in a conversational style. It was the artist intention to also have media silence during the creative process to allow a true conversation take place. A pure collaboration and jazz like session of making art, “conversations” seems to be a success in that it allowed for the work to flow. For one day only the show will open tomorrow, make sure you don’t miss this outstanding body of work.
