Transmission LA | AV Club
Beastie Boy Mike D curated the 17-day interdisciplinary festival at The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA in Los Angeles. Presented by The Avant/Garde Diaries, Mercedes-Benz’s digital magazine and global event series, Transmission LA: AV CLUB featured extraordinary site-specific installations by 17 contemporary artists, musicians, designers, filmmakers, and chefs, an evening concert and DJ series featuring performances by many special guests, including Santigold, and the international debut of the Mercedes-Benz Concept Style Coupé.
Called “an immersive experience in sensory stimulation” by Cool Hunting and “an exhibition that beautifully explores the relationship between the audio and visual through music and streams of colors and images” by CBS, Transmission LA: AV CLUB was a huge success. Over the course of the experience, the designs became part and parcel of the exhibition and it’s mission to explore the melding of art and sound. The rest of the materials, which ranged from lanyard to brochures to silk-screened posters, evolved from this logo and came to represent the spirit and energy of the highly successful event.
