After Vladimir Restoin-Roitfeld's recent show presenting Nicolas Pol, he and his mother Carine traveled west to attend the opening of the latest venture of his friend (and client) PC Valmorbida: the Prism Gallery in Los Angeles. The debut exhibit is titled "Mind the Gap" and kicks off the opening of this new art space on Sunset Strip pioneered by Australian "It boy" Valmorbida. Regarding his vision for the new gallery, Valmorbida says, “We are trying to close the gap between blue chip art and street art and make it accessible to everyone.” The street artists featured are Philip Frost and Barry McGee and the show is curated by PM Tenore, who founded RVCA. DJ Nick Cohen played to the arty crowd which included Anthony Kiedis, Margherita Missoni, Brody Jenner, Elizabeth Richards, Brandon Davis, and Stavros Niarchos. "Mind the Gap" runs through 20 February 2010 so be sure to check it out if you are in Los Angeles.
