This issue of Fabrik launches in time for the Dwell on Design Expo, June 23 to 25 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Of course, we’re infatuated with great design, its synergy with art, and how all this enhances and enriches our everyday lives. In a salute to design, in this issue, we profile LA artist/designer Peter Shire, on the occasion of Naked is the Best Disguise, a survey of his design work from the 1970s to now at MOCA Pacific Design Center. Also inside, we offer insightful commentary on our pick of some of the latest museum exhibits, gallery shows, photography and film happenings going on today. We hope this sets the tone for an exciting summer of contemporary art in the City of Angels.
