Press Release


The Standard, Hollywood in collaboration with Art Production Fund and GAVLAK present a compilation of three video works by artist Michael Manning for the Standard Hollywood’s PROJECTION: 24/7. 

These videos (Aspirational Capital No.2, No Rain, Tangerine Kush) represent an approach to video art that considers the time-based art object within the larger context of which it will be experienced or viewed. The works have no integral beginning, middle, or end. They are truly non-linear in the sense that they can be understood in whole at any point in their playback. The work is meant to be experienced in passing as the viewer walks through the given space. It is meant to be revisited over a course of time as opposed to viewed in its entirety over one sitting. The motion, animation and durational aspects of the videos reveal themselves slowly over long periods of time, allowing the viewer to discover changes only upon returning to the work much later. The videos slowly pulse, change color, and flow in organic ways, never settling on one image or shape. In many ways, these works are durational paintings more than they are videos.

The Standard, Hollywood’s PROJECTION: 24/7 series is in collaboration with Art Production Fund.  The exhibitions are shown in The Standard, Hollywood lobby and on in-room dedicated TV channels at both The Standard, Hollywood and The Standard, Downtown LA. The Standard, Hollywood, in particular, embraces local artists through continued art installations. PROJECTION: 24/7 has featured works from artists including Drew Heitzler, Casey Legler, Shannon Plumb, Mika Rottenberg, and more.

The installation will remain on view from late July through December.


Michael Manning currently lives and works in Venice, California. He attended The New York University Tisch School of the Arts and the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. Manning's work has been exhibited worldwide, including at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, and at Eyebeam Center for the Arts, New York.  Manning is best known for his alternative approaches to producing and distributing traditional art objects using technology and social networking. The artist creates paintings, videos, and installations that stem from the internet and software, utilizing the crypto-materiality of computer technology in conjunction with his interest in punk counterculture movements.

Michael Manning is represented by GAVLAK Los Angeles/Palm Beach.
