Tonight sees the launch of Transmission LA, the second in a series of events initiated by Mercedes Benz off the back of their Avant Garde program. Launched last year with Transmission Berlin and curated by Raf Simons, tonight’s event sees the Beastie Boys Mike D take the helm as curator using LA’s wonderful MOCA as its home. With the theme of Transmission LA being ‘AV CLUB’, the event sees a festival of Audio and Visual art from some of the best around the world, where the likes of Ben Jones, Jim Drain, Mike Mills, Sage Vaughn, Will Fowler, Tom Sachs and others will display purpose built installations alongside Roy Choi’s Pop Up Restaurant and a fine selection of books from Family Books. Tonight will see a massive launch with Santigold headlining before the MOCA opens for the next 17 days for Transmission LA : AV CLUB.
