one year in LA is a one year art exhibition project by conceptual artist, David E. Stone.  He is not from Los Angeles and in fact, moved here just to begin this project.  Due to his status in Los Angeles of being a relative unknown, Stone conceived of this project as an introduction to his work for art lovers in southern California.

Each month during 2004, Stone mounts a different show of his work and each exhibition employs a specific theme. 

Stone's conceptual work is eclectic in nature employing a wide range of materials and no easily identifiable continuing imagery to associate with him.  Therefore, when one sees several exhibitions, it becomes clear that his iconography is more of a mindset than specific visual images.

This project was conceived while David E. Stone was attending Manifesta in Frankfurt, Germany in June, 2002.  A year and a half in the planning, one year in LA began January 1, 2004 and will continue until December 31.

Even though one year in LA gives the impression of being an art gallery, it is not. 

This is a yearlong art exhibition project by conceptual artist, David E. Stone. 

You could think of one year in LA more like a studio visit and yet, the work is displayed professionally like an exhibition. 

Not only a newcomer to Los Angeles, Stone's conceptual work is eclectic in nature employing a wide range of materials and no easily identifiable continuing imagery to associate with him.  Therefore, when one sees several exhibitions, it becomes clear that his iconography is more of a mindset than visual image.

David E. Stone is a practicing artist whose works are conceptual in nature and uses an eclectic array of materials including digital prints, photography, collage and neon sculpture. 

His work is not easily identifiable based on his selection of materials or any consistent visual iconography.  Therefore, this yearlong project affords the best opportunity to grasp the scope of his artistic concerns and intentions.

Although seemingly similar, one year in LA is not a vanity gallery.  This is an art exhibition project not a gallery and will conclude on December 31, 2004.

one year in LA runs from January 1, 2004 through December 31.  The end of the project coincides with the end of the year.

The conclusion of this yearlong art exhibition project does not mean that David E. Stone will leave Los Angeles to start this again in another city.

There will not be another "year" somewhere else.  This project has taken almost two years to plan and an enormous amount of energy to maintain.

Stone's future plans will include entirely different projects and exhibitions in other spaces.

David E. Stone's artwork is conceptually-based.  Therefore, the work is driven by ideas not by visual images although the work is certainly visually interesting .   As an example, the first month's consisted of several slides being shown in between movies at 43 Laemmle theaters throughout southern California and was a commentary on the supposed subliminal experiments conducted in the late 1950s.

To date, Stone has shown scribbled out crossword puzzles from magazines, proposed rides for an unrealized amusement park called Ordinary World, large vinyl advertising banners of the signature of artist, Joseph Beuys, digital prints of the names of colors depicted in Braille, photographs of the La Brea Tar Pits at night.  These are only a few examples of the variety of work exhibited so far.

The materials used in his artwork during this project have included gold leaf, digital prints, neon, ink, white-out, dirt, bronze, plastic water bottles, hard ground etching, lenticular trading cards, burned books to mention a few.

David E. Stone has not been to Mars.  However, he did ride the "Rocket to Mars" attraction at Disneyland which comes close but does not allow the participants to get out of the rocket.
