Inner City Avant-Garde (ICAG) is an anarchic collective of three artists hailing from both coasts but forged in the crucible of Brooklyn. The connection between Pizarro, Prince and Davis was made nearly a decade ago, but the bond was never broken. A few loose early collaborations slowly grew and became more focused when the ICAG was made formal over a bottle of Rosé in early 2010. Now, the highs, lows and improvised weapons of this collective’s earliest work are finally having their West Coast debut.

“LOOK MOM, NO TALENT” features collaborations between Brooklyn born artist and designer, Ulysses Pizarro and L.A. based Noah Davis and Darnell Prince.

HVW8 Art + Design Gallery represents and facilitates the spirit and collaboration between art, music and design. In 1998 Tyler Gibney founded HVW8 in Montreal and in 2005 he and Addison Liu opened HVW8 in Los Angeles. With a focus in supporting avant-garde graphic design, it soon became the premier underground gallery in Los Angeles and over the past three years has featured artists such as Parra, Geoff McFetridge, Kevin Lyons, Ed Templeton, Lance Mountain, Mos Def with Cognito, Charles Munka, RaifAdelberg and Alvaro Illizarbe.
