Kevin Ancell | Nos Vemos En Venecia

On Thursday evening, October 1st RVCA was proud to present the opening reception for ANP Artist Kevin Ancell's highly anticipated, first-ever solo show: 'Nos Vemos En Venecia', curated by RVCA Founder PM Tenore. The corner of Main Street and San Juan Avenue in Venice, California was a fitting location for the gallery opening, and more importantly, a homecoming for Kevin.

"The idea for Ancell's exhibition was easy. Over the last 15 years with RVCA and the Artist Network Program I have been privileged to curate and be surrounded with so many amazing and talented artists. Ranging from museum shows to pop ups in New York, Austin, Miami, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Hong Kong. I realized that my dear friend, who I was around more often than not had never had a proper solo show. In that moment we both looked at each other and decided that needed to change... We were going to create a show for him in Venice. It was time for Kevin to come full circle and share his art in the place that began to inform his work. His artistic ability is just the tip of the iceberg, Kev is a true renaissance man." -- PM Tenore

'Nos Vemos En Venecia' will be on view at 1320 Main St Venice, CA until October 15th.

Sunday Collection | Holiday '15 Lookbook

There is only one legitimate way of spending a Sunday. Sleep in late, a hot cup of coffee on the balcony, a late brunch with friends, maybe a little walk around the neighborhood or to the farmers market, and extreme levels of chilling out. Let your hangover wear off in comfortable easy to wear stylish pieces that can easily transition from at-home comfort to cruising about your day. Sundays are about the perfect, no frills, layering pieces meant to be worn under the most simple of dresses or by themselves for a mellow day. Soft fabrics, sexy tomboy styling, and relaxed fits will make you wish that there was a day between Saturday and Sunday. This collection was designed just for you by RVCA. Enjoy your Sunday!

Aaron Rose | TOTEMS

RVCA Advocate Aaron Rose will be opening his solo exhibition 'TOTEMS' this Thursday, October 1st from 7-9pm at Circle Culture Gallery in Berlin. The exhibition focuses on paintings and kinetic sculptures by Rose and will be on view through October 31st.

The works in TOTEMS deal with objects and feelings of desire, and how this relates to different aspects of spirituality – or artificial spirituality – that human beings use to get through the life experiment. Some of the works deal with religion and the tribal aspects of religious iconography, but not in a classical sense. The large faces in the works on canvas represent idols. They could be considered portraits of fictitious gods. The texts on each work relate specifically to various concepts of longing. This could be a desire for meaning, for inspiration, or for love, all of which are reasons that we as humans seek spiritual connection.
