Disruptors
Petersen Automotive Museum
6060 Wilshire Boulevard
Los Angeles
http://www.petersen.org
This is a focus on vehicles with a stripped down, minimalist aesthetic from Cool Material favorites like Rem D Koolhaas and Joey Ruiter. It’s an entire collection of vehicles that eschews traditional manufacturing methods, resource allocation and gratuitous complexity in favor of clean yet sophisticated designs that are unlike anything else on the market. If you’re interested in meeting the artists and catching the opening, it’s on June 28th at the Petersen Automotive Museum in LA. The ‘Distruptors’ exhibit will run until March of 2020 if you can’t make it to the opening.

Having adopted the fundamental principles of reductionism, designer Rem D Koolhaas and industrial designer Joey Ruiter apply a minimalist approach to the look of conventional objects in independently conceived, yet complementary ways. Both Koolhaas and Ruiter share a self-imposed mandate to strip all expectation of conformity from products ranging in scope from footwear and furniture to automobiles and motorcycles. Yet while their goals are shared, they pursue them through their own respective companies, United Nude and JRuiter + Studio.
Seizing an opportunity to create (and then cater to) a growing demand among enlightened, progressive consumers for the sophistication of simplicity, Koolhaas and Ruiter have eschewed a traditional design approach and in doing so left themselves free to mold familiar objects in unexpected ways. A happy byproduct of such a practice, their simple designs also obviate many of the production problems that one would expect to encounter had the objects been more traditionally complex.

Together, Koolhaas and Ruiter jointly expose the barriers posed by currently accepted manufacturing methods, which have resulted from binary conceptualizations of production (form versus function), costs (time versus money), and resources (labor versus materials). By eliminating gratuitous complexity, they have imbued their creations with a technical sophistication that could not have been achieved otherwise. Deliberately titled Disruptors, the Petersen Automotive Museum exhibition presents the works of two designers whose markedly different approaches upend the norm by superimposing technology and art on one another.

Winning Numbers: The First, The Fastest, The Famous
Petersen Automotive Museum
6060 Wilshire Boulevard
Los Angeles
http://www.petersen.org
One of the world’s foremost ambassadors of automotive enthusiasm, California-based car aficionado Bruce Meyer has spent decades carefully building a collection of truly superlative vehicles. Preferring the title of “enthusiast” over “collector,” Bruce only acquires cars of substantial importance and emotional impact, often without regard for investment potential. As a result, his stable of classics, hot rods and race cars - while not immense in scale - is among the most significant anywhere. Winning Numbers presents a selection of Bruce’s finest competition vehicles, each with a story as captivating as its beauty. These machines are regularly driven and appear in this exhibition as a testament to Bruce’s passion and ongoing desire to share with others.
