Last night at Los Angeles’ MOCA, they unleashed an audio and video feast for the senses: the Mike D of the Beastie Boys curated art spectacular that is Transmission LA. The event featured celebrities, a performance by Santigold, people clawing to get in, and an entire art warehouse packed with moving colors that reshaped and recolored rooms: it was like being on acid with thousands of people even though there were no drugs involved (at least for us).
The event boasted tons of video art/moving art superstars that spanned from Ara Peterson and Jim Drain to Mike Mills to Sage Vaughn to Takeshi Murata–even Los Angeles chef Roy Choi had a hand in it! The star of the show was Ben Jones, who created a room that made you feel like you entered some sort of racing video game, smiling sun and moon, moving floor, and everything. It was baller. The event is only a few weeks long and will be gone in a flash so, if you live in LA or are visiting LA from now until the top of May, you HAVE to see this show.
