A One-Night Stand for Art & Architecture
A One-Night Stand for Art & Architecture (One-Night Stand LA) - an event and publication project by a group of emerging architects and artists from Los Angeles exploring different forms of media, but also new possibilities for architectural strategies of subversion.
One-Night Stand is a single encounter without expectations of further exposure or presence of its participants. Further relations may be explored; memories may be written but nothing is carried to tomorrow. We return to banality once the night is over. The stability, the safety of the norm is returned. We provoke you with a taste. This one-night, this one moment allows our vices, our desires and our minds to tease, penetrate and release.
One Night Stand - LA was founded by William Hu, Ryan Tyler Martinez and Anthony Morey. The show was conceived as a format for artist, architects and all variations in-between to explore vices, provocations, tendencies or questions that kept them awake at night. The tension of the responsibilities of life, and the explorations of dreams came to fruition through the manifestations of the ideas that occupied the rooms.
Critics may come to call the idea as “mental arousal and release without emotional commitment or future involvement”.
We call it, a One-Night Stand for Art & Architecture.
