Devendra Banhart To Present A Pop-up Emporium and Performances at Hauser & Wirth’s Annual Holiday Market

Devendra Banhart, the acclaimed Los Angeles-based Venezuelan-American singer-songwriter and visual artist, will present ‘Other Flowers,’ a multi-medium pop-up retail experience at Hauser & Wirth Los Angeles, as part of the gallery’s third annual Holiday Market, a two-day marketplace featuring more than 40 local makers, artists, performers, and nonprofit organizations.

Over the course of the Holiday Market weekend, Banhart’s ‘Other Flowers’ will transform the gallery’s Education Loft into a specially designed environment conceived by architect and designer Chau Truong. Here, Banhart will offer visitors access to his work in art, song, curation, and magic: in addition to exclusive merchandise items created for ‘Other Flowers,’ the pop-up will have collaboratively-made apparel, books, personalized vinyl, photography, and paintings. ‘Other Flowers’ will also be the site of live performances ranging from song and dance, to pantomime and magic. The line-up includes Banhart, who will perform rare solo set, as well as White Fence, Rodrigo Amarante, Nao Bustamante, Jasmine Albuquerque and Friends, and Invisible Women, among others.

On Saturday, artist Claire Hungerford and Leaves and Flowers have partnered to present a chai cart in the gallery’s courtyard as part of the Holiday Market project.

‘Other Flowers’ will be open throughout the course of the Hauser & Wirth Holiday Market, from Saturday through Sunday, 14 – 15 December 2019, 11 am – 6 pm.
