Ace Hotel presents Foreign Exchange in DTLA

by Flaunt Magazine

Thursday, July 26th, Ace DTLA’s Segovia Hall is hosting the LA edition of London-based project Foreign Affair, Foreign Exchange. 

Curated by Undine Markus and Holly Rae Jones, this exhibition will display works by international photographers Ashani, Othello Grey, Neva Wireko and more - showcasing portraits and imagery of popular musicians such as PartyNextDoor, Tyler, the Creator, Syd, RAYE, Joey Bada$$, and Princess Nokia. 

"The project brings together international talent working in photography and moving image. The selection of work will present socially and culturally diverse viewpoints on contemporary music, celebrating the intersection between fashion, documentary, and conceptual photography."

Foreign Exchange will be accompanied by an industry panel for creatives in the music industry and an after party at Ace Hotel’s rooftop bar, Upstairs, with DJ sets from MadBadTing and Ssticks.

While the exhibition hopes to stir up discussion amongst visitors and online followers, the purpose of the discussion panel is to bring together established industry professionals - offering advice for those seeking. 

The discussion panel will be hosted by:

  • Andreea Magdalina - Founder of SheSaidSo
  • Emily Hillgren - Founder of Indigo Projects
  • Vlad Sepetov - Head of Creative at Keep Cool
  • Angella Choe - Freelance Creative Consultant  

"For Foreign Exchange, we wanted to embrace two subjects very close to our hearts: music and photography. Visually we love works that are striking, energetic and colourful." - Undine Markus

The schedule for the day will go as follows:

  • Exhibition & Screenings: 11am - 9pm, Segovia Hall
  • Panel 3 - 4:30 (RSVP essential)
  • Afterparty (DJs MadBadTing x Ssticks) 7 - 9pm
