Robert Berman Gallery to host affair on November 13, 2007

On November 13, 2007, Culver City-based fette's gallery will mark its one-year anniversary with an evening of engaging visual art and deserved celebration. This single-evening event and exhibition will be hosted by and take place at Robert Berman Gallery in Bergamot Station, Santa Monica. In keeping with fette's gallery's objective of presenting compelling new work from both sides of the Atlantic, the event will feature an exhibition of artist-curated solo and collaborative pieces by both American and European artists. DJ sets curated by Little Radio (Los Angeles) and Le Prince de Blois (Paris) and catered food and drinks will round out this not-to-be-missed intersection of celebration and visual exploration.

Featured artists for the fette's gallery One-Year Anniversary event include Reed Anderson (de), Jonathan Ballak (us), Lauren Bride (ca), Martha Colburn (us), Emmeline de Mooij (nl), Anne de Vries (nl), Daniel Eatock (us), Frédéric Fleury (fr), Stefan Guggisberg (de), Matt King (us), Jaring Lokhorst (nl), Eddie Martinez (us), Roland Moraud (fr), Emmanuelle Pidoux (fr), Maegan Reid (us), Rebecca Saylor Sack (us), Sarah Smith (us), Porous Walker (us), and more to be announced. A number of artists will create collaborative pieces, including: Anoush Abrar (ch) and Aimee Hoving (ch); Catrin Altenbrandt (de) and Adrien Niesler (de); and Sandrine Pelletier (fr/ch), Justin Morin (ch) and Erwan Frotin (ch). John Copeland (us) will create a site-specific mural exclusively for the occasion.

The work will be on-view for this one special night only, and all work is available for sale. As with all fette's gallery shows, 10% of the proceeds will go to Doctors Without Borders.

fette's gallery One-Year Anniversary is thankful for the participation of its sponsors:
media sponsors Flavorpill, Artkrush, Little Radio, and Vernissage TV; alcohol sponsors Chimay, Absolut and Starbucks Liqueur; and the support of the Consulate General of the Netherlands, Los Angeles.

The Flog and the road to fette's gallery
In April 2005, French visual artist Fette launched her blog The Flog ( to connect with the LA's flourishing art scene and to promote the work of the region's artists. Eighteen months later on October 20, 2006, she opened fette's gallery to public and critical acclaim with the inaugural show I Know You, But You Don't Know Me. Since then, Fette's Culver City-based gallery has presented exhibitions, film projections and performances that remain true to the gallery's mission: to stand as an independent laboratory to generate new dialogues between artists working both in and outside of California.

Over the past year, fette's gallery has also come to play a vital role in Southern California's dynamic art scene-the role of the cutting-edge creative space. According to gallerist Robert Berman, who owns a Bergamot Station gallery by the same name, "Los Angeles needs an underground, and fette's gallery is the ultimate underground art scene-the gallery is hard to find, but once you get there you're truly inspired by her choices."

Celebrating the past, looking to the future
fette's gallery One-Year Anniversary is a exclamation point to a successful first year, and a harbinger of a very busy year ahead-a sign that Fette and her gallery are moving in a positive direction. In addition to assembling an exciting array of exhibitions for 2008, fette's gallery is honored to be a part of a number of upcoming fairs and projects: Fette was recently invited by Chung King Project to exhibit work at the gallery's booth during the Zoo Art Fair in London in early October; fette's gallery will be showing in room 105 at the Aqua Art Fair in Miami this December; and Fette has been invited to participate in Project(O/), an international side-event of Art Rotterdam organized by MAMA in February 2008.
