Petra Collins, a NYC based photographer, filmmaker, and author, graced LA with her presence during a Q & A orchestrated by Miranda July. July, a witty California-based author, set up a quirky and authentic conversation for attendees. The event was held at DTLA bookstore, Hauser & Wirth. The intimate venue attracted crowds of young creatives who have been following Collins visual diaries over the years. Collins, at just 24-years old, has seen larger-scale success this past year, with names like Selena Gomez, Gucci, and several others. However, her passion project has been her most recent book, "Coming of Age," which fans eagerly lined up to have her sign. Below is a link to Collin's website, however you can purchase the book on most online platforms. We are looking forward to having her in the studio in the future.

Sánchez-Kane is a Mexican clothing line founded by Bárbara Sánchez-Kane, an engineer-turned-designer whose radical motifs often address Latinx identity and Mexican-American relations. Sánchez-Kane incorporates text and image into hallucinogenic outfits that celebrate nonconformity. For ICA LA, Sánchez-Kane will present Vast Graveyard of the Missing, a conceptual fashion presentation that addresses migration, displacement, and “the movement of hearts and bodies.” - ICA LA Website (click here)
