The inaugural 2024 edition of SIZED SELECTS, presented by SIZED, explored Los Angeles car culture through a curatorial lens. Under the creative direction of founder Alexander May, the exhibition featured a fleet of iconic, all-black automobiles ranging from contemporary gems to vintage classics and rare finds. Spanning decades of manufacturing techniques, each model was curated in collaboration with Damon Jones, to illustrate the profound impact of machinery on the evolution of form.

Set within the historic former Howard Hughes headquarters, and with a satellite location at The West Hollywood EDITION, these exceptional vehicles were contextualized as sculptural objects and displayed in a gallery format. The all-black palette, an intentional extraction of color, allowed shape, line, and frame to emerge in sharp relief, elevating form as a value on par with the power and precision that define automotive design excellence. Vehicles included a 1993 Vector W8, a 1982 Rolls-Royce Corniche Convertible, a 2002 Porsche 911 GT2, and a 1993 Mercedes 500SEC AMG, among others.

SIZED SELECTS embodies a unique approach to curation by inviting leading creative visionaries to collaborate on each exhibition’s conceptual development. For Los Angeles, SIZED collaborated with designer Willo Perron to conceive a bespoke 65-foot communal table and 80 limited edition, transparent chairs for USM Modular Furniture. The work served as a visual anchor from which to explore the surrounding collection of cars.

Each evening, the installation transformed into an immersive nocturnal experience with culinary collective We Are Ona. Expanding perceptions of shape and function, the all-black fleet, veiled in silk fabric to accentuate each vehicle’s silhouette, set the stage for a series of curated dinners.

SIZED SELECTS Los Angeles was a conceptual exploration of the city’s intrinsic and storied relationship with motor vehicles and the significance of their sculptural and material interconnectedness. It was a celebration of collaborative culture, automotive ingenuity, and the power of black.
