For its inaugural showing, SIZED has collaborated with dealers, artists, designers, and collectors, creating a site-specific exhibition and experience. The objects presented are informed by a glossary of words created by SIZED Creative Director, Alexander May, spanning from the tangible, “vessel” and “mineral,” to the intangible, “useful” and “sustain,” each embodying the SIZED ethos in which site is treated as medium, and object functions as aura.
Proposing “the stage” as a site for displaying objects in a multitude of forms, May calls attention to the relationship that objects have to our more performative lives. The works will be presented on steel decks, at similar heights, creating an expansive horizon in which the viewer can move through without start or end.
Never-before-seen works and items available for purchase for the first time will include a couture sculpture by Sterling Ruby / S.R. STUDIO. LA. CA., a selection of vintage instruments from Lykke Li’s past performances, furniture designed by Luka Sabbat, a Gallic chair by Michèle Lamy for Rick Owens Furniture, terracotta head vases from Casa Ahorita, and unique hand-crafted garments by No Sesso. CIELO, the Indigenous-women-led nonprofit dedicated to Indigenous communities in Los Angeles, will have their book, Dižà Nó Ole, available for purchase.
