Last month saw the Lexus LS 460 "Unpacking" installation at the World Financial Plaza in New York (click here for that), and now Lexus is back in town, at 461 Fifth Ave., with "Light and Speed," a traveling gallery featuring multimedia work from contemporary artists, also on behalf of the new LS 460. The 460 Degrees Gallery opened in Los Angeles Oct. 20, and will be in New York for the rest of November before moving on to Miami and Chicago. A joint production of lifestyle marketing company Inform Ventures, Lime Public Relations + Promotion, and Lexus agency Team One, the gallery is curated by Sebastien Agneessens of Formavision, with Shamim Momin, associate curator at the Whitney Museum, serving as an executive consultant for the exhibition. The defining piece of art in the show is "Timegate," by Belgian designer Arne Quinze of Quinze & Milan. A spiral structure composed of 3,300 pine planks, the work is not unlike Quinze's construction for this year's Burning Man festival, "Uchronia." "I want this work to be an experience out of time," Quinze says of "Timegate." "Since it's a piece of art you walk into, it goes beyond visual understanding." Also at the 460 Gallery is video artist Pascual Sisto's "Push/Pull," an homage to American car culture, and Miranda Lichtenstein's photographic series "The Searchers," which explores paths to higher consciousness.
