Opening Night Gala at Corey Helford for Debut of Sylvia Ji's "Haute Epoch"

Juxtapoz // Thursday, 16 Apr 2009

Returning to LA’s Corey Helford Gallery for her second solo show, Haute Epoch, the highly collected Sylvia Ji (Juxtapoz #80) continued her upward trajectory in the mastery of capturing a darker side of the beautiful and the sublime.

Ji’s visual elixir of life and death attracted a plethora of fans to the opening night festivities, which included a video presentation by filmmaker Phill Schwartz (shown above next to the artist). The effect was a stunning sensory exploration of Ji’s work. Continue that exploration with us in gorgeous event photos below:
