This past weekend we stopped by Known Gallery to check out Aaron Rose’s Fire Sale. When Rose moved to Los Angeles from NYC in 2001, the Beautiful Losers curator left a "big black box of 1990?s memories" in storage space in Glendale. Now he is having a gallery style fire sale. Photos and more after the jump…

Beautiful Loser curator, artist, filmmaker, and musician Aaron Rose has been involved many art projects over the years, and was a major figure in NYC's underground art scene in the 1990s. Since, he has moved to Los Angeles and has a "big black box of 1990?s memories" in storage space in Glendale, and now he is having a fire sale. At a gallery. Known Gallery. Which makes it sort of an exhibition fire sale if we were being clear.

We stopped by Known Gallery this past weekend to check out LEGOLIZE IT! | INDISPENSABLE: Art by the ounce. Done in compliance with CA Proposition 215, the LAgo brand, the show featured. Synthetic starter-plants, seedlings, clones, and a totally huge selection of intoxicating, fake plastic buds- all built with LEGO bricks to resemble some of the finest strains of medicinal marijuana ever grown will be on display and available for limited purchase.

Go back and read Augustine Kofie's feature in the October 2010 issue, and he and El Mac have one of the best discussions two artists/friends/collaborators we have had in the magazine over the past few years. That said, we are always excited to see what Kofie's newest architectural-based works will look like, and Todd Mazer stopped by Kofie's studio prior to the artist's solo show, Working an Angle, at Known Gallery in LA.

Augustine Kofie’s solo exhibition Working an Angle opens this Saturday May 26, 2012 at Known Gallery in Los Angeles. The show will feature dense collages and assemblage on wood with yardstick framing, paintings on canvas and hand painted multiples. This will be the artists first solo exhibition in his hometown of Los Angeles in three years and will definitely be worth checking out.

Lots of good shows opening this weekend (Travis Millard, Dave Kinsey, for example) but we are also looking to next weekend when one of our favorites, Augustine Kofie, opens a brand new body of work, Working the Angles, at Los Angeles' Known Gallery. The exhibition will features 30+ works including dense collage and assemblage on wood with yardstick framing, paintings on canvas, and hand painted multiples.
