Opening Ceremony has teamed up with the Mike Kelley Foundation for the Arts, in support of the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles to create a capsule collection that coincides with the Mike Kelley retrospective at MOCA. Expect tote bags, long sleeve tees and short sleeve tees featuring a selection of Kelley’s drawings and photographs from various early projects such as The Poltergeist (1979) and Monkey Island (1982-83). Sold exclusively at Opening Ceremony stores and the MOCA store.

The Mike Kelley Foundation for the Arts was founded in 2007 to support activities and projects of merit by artists, curators, writers, art students, and arts organizations in financial need. Kelley (1954-2012) is widely regarded as one of the most influential artists of our time. His work includes performances, drawings, sculpture, photography, sound and installations and explores themes as diverse as sexuality, Repressed Memory Syndrome, systems of religion and transcendence and post-punk politics.

Hedi Slimane has taken his diary to the streets of Los Angeles. The maverick designer turned photographer’s signature black and white images can be seen on 89 digital billboards throughout the city. With his solo exhibition California Song at the MOCA in Los Angeles just opened, for the next three months the digital billboards will evolve and follow his California diary. Having turned London’s Brick Lane street kids into the global epitome of cool, since 2006 Slimane’s online photographic diary has invented new ways of documenting emerging youth culture.

California Song marks the beginning of his “California period” in July 2007 and traces his explorations of cycles of urban youth culture and artistic communities, through installations of photographic essays, exhibitions, and publications. Be sure to follow the story.

Hedi Slimaneʼs California Song, is at MOCA Pacific Design Center until January 22, 2012.
