Event Coverage from Preview: Mercado Los Olvidados (pop-up market), Curated by Camille Rose Garcia and Paul Kaufman – Friday September 22nd through Sunday September 24th

Posted by

Mercado Los Olvidados, loosely translated as the Lost Ones Market and borrowing inspiration from the surrealist Luis Buñuel’s film of the same name, is an annual artist’s popup market taking place, fittingly, in underground downtown Los Angeles.

Check out the preview video here

Conceived and curated by Camille Rose Garcia and Pskaufman, Mercado Los Olvidados was created for the purpose of bringing artists and their communities directly together.

Foregoing the traditional artist/gallery model, by bringing multiple artists together and allowing them to show the depth of how their work can be interpreted. Mercado Los Olvidados hopes to change the way people think of art, change how and what art they buy and how it could be incorporated into their daily lives.

Camille Rose Garcia, Mab Graves, Travis Lampe, Nicomi Nix Turner, Gretchen Lewis, Jessicka Addams, Matt Darling, Aubregine Vagin, Panca, Bryn Perrott, Adam Wallacavage, Bonethrower, Sugar Fueled, Bittersqueaks, Tripper Dungan, Tom Haney + Kristina Drake. See more here.
