Know Hope @ Carmichael Gallery

Know Hope Carmichael Poster

Know Hope is one of my favorite under-appreciated street artists. His images tug at the heartstrings. They are delicate in a way that not much street art is. I’ve interviewed him before for Vandalog, so if you haven’t read that interview, have a look.

Know Hope’s solo show at the Carmichael Gallery opens in two weeks, on June 4th. It’s an installation show called “The times won’t save you (this rain smells of memory)”. I’m disappointed that I can’t be in LA for this show.

Press release:

30,000 paper raindrops. 40,000 feet of fishing twine. 2,500 fishing weights. Hundreds of sheets of cardboard fashioned into miniature works of art and a crowd of life-size cut-out characters. Incorporating all of the above ingredients and more for his debut Los Angeles solo show at Carmichael Gallery of Contemporary Art on June 4th, 2009, Israeli artist Know Hope invites you to literally step inside one of his artworks for a visual experience unlike any you have ever encountered and one you will never forget.

“This exhibition holds nothing but a reflection of where we are now, and offers us nothing but the suggestion of adaptation and (re)adjustment to the current tides.  This is a binding burden, and we’re all in this together.”
– Know Hope

Know Hope will be in attendance at the opening reception of “the times won’t save you (this rain smells of memory)” on Thursday, June 4th, 2009 from 7.00pm – 10.00pm. The exhibition will be open for viewing through Thursday, July 2nd 2009 from 1.00pm -7.00pm. Please contact to preview available work.
