A small group of Long Beach artists have opened a new studio in a First District industrial area along Daisy Avenue and are eager to announce their arrival with a pop-up art show, entitled FREE PARKING this Saturday. It's not an event any self-proclaimed Long Beach arts aficionado would want to miss.
Aside from the activations in a league of their own, like Nike’s basketball court and A Bathing Ape’s almost ceiling-tall walls showcasing Travis Scott’s collaboration Lamborghini, we traipsed through the ComplexCon streetwear jungle and picked out the five best, and five worst setups. It’s amazing what these brands accomplished, with most of them nestled into the smallest of spaces, to catch the attention of the thousands of attendees wandering the ComplexCon convention space. Here’s what we think worked and what didn’t.
ComplexCon is set to be the Agenda Show for consumers—a feast for the eyes, ears and mouths of the 15,000 streetwear and pop culture fans and aficionados expected to overtake the Long Beach Convention & Entertainment Center this weekend. Everything seems to be falling into place perfectly and it’s with great anticipation that the Post was able to chat with ComplexCon Event Director Neil Wright and Complex Chief Content Officer Noah Callahan-Bever.
