Bob Branaman and Brigtte Moos: OPENING RECEPTION: A Diamond Light at the Memory Palace

Saturday November 16th  15:00 (PST)

Join us for a free reception to celebrate the art of Robert Branaman and Brigtte Moos!!

Beat Generation poet, painter, and film producer Bob Branaman continues to make avantgarde art today. Branaman joined the Beatniks in San Francisco in the 1950s, part of the Kansas Vortex, which included Charles Plymell and Michael McClure, and soon made his name as a hep cat. He outlived many of his bohemian contemporaries, despite his bad habits. Over the years he has collected a great deal of stories and ephemera from that time period and because he has outlived most of his beat contemporaries he is in many ways an archivist and one of the last voices of the Beat Generation.

Birgitte Moos is an Artist from Copenhagen, Denmark, working in Los Angeles and Copenhagen.

Birgitte works in an unconventional, interdisciplinary manner to combine art, theory and function. Utilizing the vibrant space and surroundings of the City Birgitte exhibits visual art works often focusing on the totality of an environment reflecting all aspects of her art and vice versa.
Holding an MFA in set design from Denmark’s Royal College of Fine Arts in Copenhagen, Birgitte also studied painting and set design at The Berlin University of Arts under Achim Freyer who recently staged The Ring Cycle at the LA Opera.

As a Visual Artist and Set Designer, Birgitte has been involved in numerous projects in theater, short films, videos, performances and gallery exhibitions internationally, also lecturing in set design, amongst projects such as Zentropa Productions by Danish Filmdirector Lars von Trier.

In 2011 Birgittes set design for the staging of ‘The Arsonists’ at The Odyssey Theater in Los Angeles was nominated as set design of the year by LA Weekly. In 2012 Birgitte was selected from thousands as a finalist in the Saatchi Gallery’s Open Call for Abstract Art. In April this year she was the Featured Artist at the Downtown Artwalk curated out of Artists from all LA.
