The Juvenilia + Rookie: Exhibition and Pop-Up Shop in LA (8/9-8/11)


Six years ago, the photography website Flickr allowed a community of young photographers around the world to discover one another’s work. One such friendship developed between Nolan Boomer, editor of the online zine The Juvenilia, and Erica Segovia, staff photographer for Rookie magazine.

Inspired by the artistic vision of last summer’s Rookie Road Trip, Nolan and Erica are curating an exhibition and pop-up shop entitled “This Line Is Part of a Very Large Circle” next August 9th-11th in Los Angeles. The show will feature artwork with a sixties aesthetic that addresses identity and fragmentation. Artists in this exhibition (such as Eleanor Hardwick, Chrissie White, Nolan Boomer, and Rachel Hardwick) have contributed to publications such as RookieThe JuveniliaThe BelieverVice Magazine UK, and British Vogue.

The opening night party from 6-9PM on August 9th at Silverlake boutique Hemingway & Pickett will feature performance art, embroidery, film projections, collage, and much much more. See more information here.
