ATE9 DANCE COMPANY
Ate9 is a premiere name in Los Angeles for experimental dance, led by renowned choreographer Danielle Agami.
Deemed “one of Los Angeles’ hottest cultural commodities” by the Fjords Review, Ate9 will perform their latest work in Queen George by staging intimate duets throughout the gallery. Choreographer Danielle Agami has orchestrated a visual piece that is impactful and highly physical in nature. Due to the nature of the exhibition, audiences will be intimately close to the action and immersed in all of the supporting visual elements provided by Roth and Raveh.
Amir Raveh is a designer who has crafted masterpiece furniture from repurposed materials in war torn countries.
Known best in his home country of Isreal (the nationality shared amongst all three artists), Raveh has made his name by scavenging for found material to create one-of-a-kind furniture pieces. Melding utility with humanity, Raveh transcends the inherently posh identity of furniture design and introduces a level of soulful inquisition for all audiences to witness.
All of Amir Raveh’s pieces will be available to bid on online and will be auctioned off on the 25th, the final day of the show (auction courtesy of Bid27).
Avi Roth is a abstract expressionist artist who conjures rorschach-like paintings with his brushless, patented Coffeegraph process.
After reaching a high level of success as a fashion photographer, with placement in publications like Harpers Bazaar and Vogue, Roth sought out a higher calling. Through his Coffeegraph process, based on the principle of using coffee as a pigment, he has found creative nourishment and critical praise for his innovative work. Without using brushes, Avi shapes each piece based on an intuition that can only be described as a spiritual influence – allowing the essence of each piece to be spontaneous and mysterious all at once.
