The Mistake Room at LA><ART Annex
Apr 19, 2011
Hollywood, CA—The Mistake Room is pleased to announce its Spring 2011 season that will inaugurate with one of the most comprehensive evenings of contemporary art works to date. The lots assembled for this evening offer some of the most iconic and art historically important contemporary works by some the most renowned artists from around the world. Executed between 1945-present, these works were recently re-discovered and recuperated by the seller who then treated and restored them to pristine condition. Despite excessive relocations, extreme exposure to light and flash photography, and several storage periods in flattening vaults, The Mistake Room is proud to be able to guarantee each work with a satisfactory condition report and a certificate of authenticity. Through sharp and rigorous engagement with the works, the seller was capable of identifying the works and their relationship prior to consigning them to The Mistake Room. Such is the importance of these works to our understanding of the current landscape of art production, circulation, and presentation, that editions of them can be found in the collections of some of the world’s most prominent contemporary art institutions. Never before offered in a single event, these works visualize one of the most coveted and rarely articulated art historical narratives—unearthing the desires that underpin our yearning for such timeless treasures.
