Days Days is an LA-based experimental retailer specializing in curating independent projects around a conceptual theme, hosting thoughtful events, and providing support and feedback to makers.
(1)

Days is an iterative and fluid retail/community/event space in Los Feliz. With each iteration we host events and bring together collections under different themes. Days is a space responsive to dreams, ideas, perceptions, objects, trips; a place where we can engage with each other as makers and thinkers and people.

Spotted in the wild: @barker_hayley print for Communication by Seduction Project (windows, real or imagined) a project by @days.la & @tatjjjjjana for Cities of Days: Oil, 2018. There are still some prints available online if you are re-decorating during quarantine and want new art! Stay safe out there.

Closing day! Play Days: Wrong Edition @theicala has offered an open-platform investigation of (dis)embodiment, trans-identity, queer futurity, subculture, community building, and expressions of desire and play through objects, clothing, language, & events.

Travel inside Portal 0 by @talis_clothing at Play Days: Wrong Edition : “I had a dream where I picked a bunch of willowy, golden yellow flowers that I’d never seen before in my waking life, but in my dream I knew their name, where they grew and what medicinal uses they had. To recall what you didn’t know you’d forgotten, count backwards from 21 and in your minds eye, enter the Portals. When you get to Zero, you will see the Fool: your eternal spirit.”

Amelia Lockwood makes whimsical & sensuous ceramics—we are lucky enough to be showing a collection of them at Play Days: Wrong Edition @theicala. M, including L - R: Algae Hole, Lipstick Vase, Yellow Inside, 2019.

@amiamia is a visual artist whose use of ceramic processes privileges trace, growth, mutation and chance. Lockwood received her BFA from Syracuse University (2012), completed post-bac studies at the University of Colorado, Boulder (2016), and is currently an MFA candidate at the University of California, Los Angeles. @ ICA LA (Institute of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles)

Artist Quincy Irving painted a 46-yard curtain for Play Days: Wrong Edition @theicala. The piece is titled Arranged to be Pleated (Following High Noon), 2019

“A shadow centers itself on a flight of stairs and threatens to descend; the conversations below begin to falter as silhouettes disentangle and fluctuate across various surfaces. The room’s occupants have vacated, though what persists is strewn across the floor, hanging precariously. Weighted down not by the painted architecture but rather its physical volume, the pleated curtain masquerades as a backdrop. Quickly the distinction between fabric and figure collapses, revealing the fiction and permeability of the gates, fences, boundaries. While these delineations suppose a sort of hierarchy, the hoisting of the fabric (its buoyancy) intervenes, staging a plot -- at least an atmosphere, albeit disjointed.”

Quincy Irving, born in Long Beach, California, received a BA in Studio Art (2019) from UCLA with minors in LGBTQ studies and Visual and Performing Arts. He currently lives and works in Los Angeles.

This is the last week to see @quincyirving curtain and other pieces at Play Days: Wrong sedition, closing January 26!

Play Days: Wrong Edition at the ICA LA has a range of gift options for the Holidays! We put together this handy guide to showcase a few of the options at the shop from independent makers and artists represented. From whimsical handmade soaps from @noisepup to splurge-worthy ceramics from @amiamia & @maleglaze, unique stuffed mohair creatures from @made.cozy and handblown glasses from @laublife, there are presents for all tastes!

The shop is along with the museum, Wednesday - Friday 11–7pm & Saturday - Sunday 11–6pm. @ ICA LA (Institute of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles)

Days operates as a gallery model, with iterations of the shop stretching for a single season. Each season we explore different concepts, change the name, the makers in the shop, along with the space and branding. Play Days: Wrong Edition, Days’ tenth iteration overall, is the second in the project space at the ICA LA and is picking up some of the threads from the current exhibitions (No Wrong Holes: Thirty Years of Nayland Blake and Sadie Barnette: The New Eagle Creek Saloon) to create a conversation within the museum between contemporary makers and the work in the museum.

Come visit Wednesdays-Sundays during museum open hours!

Play Days: Wrong Edition at @theicala is Days’ tenth iteration! Like everything Days does, it wouldn’t be possible without intensive behind-the-scenes creative collaboration to make the structure possible to showcase the 65 artists & designers & presses we are working with in this iteration!
It’s possible thanks to: @kelsey_sundberg who designed the space, @quincyirving who hand painted the curtain, giving us an immersive, magical environment, @infavorofus who stepped in for last minute merching, @duskwork who made us the tables, @minabeckman who organized, cut & sanded, moved & cleaned, @alecemmons who makes all the systems run smoothly & intelligently, @reihertzler who helps organize, @c2elliott_ who engaged the gargantuan task of stripping the walls from a previous installation with a great attitude, @theicala for providing a space (with air conditioning!) to hold the project, and many more!

Come visit Wednesdays - Sundays through January 26th!

Play Days: Wrong Edition is open! Thank you to all who came out to the the ICA LA Open House on Sunday, it was an outpouring of support! And thank you to @naylandblake for the incredible exhibition on view @theicala. This iteration of Days reflects on Nayland Blake’s boundary transgressing practice, upholding Days’ open-platform investigation of (dis)embodiment, trans-identity, futurity, subculture, community building, expressions of desire, and play through objects, clothing, and language.
Open Hours: Wednesday - Sunday through January 26th @ ICA LA (Institute of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles) Nora Beckman
