PARACHUTE MARKET | ALONE TOGETHER
Saturday & Sunday, June 18th & 19th 11am-7pm
“We’re fascinated by the words – but where we meet is in the silence behind them.” – Ram Dass
We are honored and thrilled to invite you to attend the current expression of Parachute Market, “Alone Together,” Saturday & Sunday, June 18 & 19 taking place at and in conjunction with MAMA Gallery - DTLA.
Celebrating the sixth PARACHUTE MARKET – ALONE TOGETHER with a curated series of events and retail pop-ups happening throughout the Downtown Los Angeles Arts District during the month of June, 2016.
This year’s curatorial team consists of: Coryander Friend, Jessica Hundley, Tasya Van Ree, and Petecia Le Fawnhawk. Each of these women are creating - in their respective fields - works celebrated for their imagination, authenticity and spirit.
With this show we look to our creative community to ask ourselves, in a world where so much depends upon group consciousness, where do we find the space for our own voice – who are you within the group and who are you “alone”?
Please join us for a weekend of community, as we gather and shine in an exquisite group show and marketplace.
Tickets are limited for the First Look Preview event

Élan Vital includes works by Daniele Albright, Taiana Giefer, Nicole Nadeau, JS Nero, Spencer Hansen, Eliot Lee Hazel, and Lianne Barnes, with a special performance by Jessica Tonder and music by James Oliver & Adam Freeland.
French for the vital life force or creative impulse, Élan Vital is a collection of works that speak to our innate impetus, energy and compulsion to create. It is coursing through us, and this agency manifests itself in this selection of sculptures, photographs and mixed media installations – collectively a delicate balance between that which exists and that which comes to fruition – that which is found and that which is created.
Van Ree describes her inspiration as “an intellectual translation of a universal language that opens us up to a higher frequency of existence, and an advanced level of consciousness.”
“We wanted to pull from our local community of artists,” says Le Fawnhawk, “works we felt explored the connection of Élan Vital through a simplicity of spirit and diversity of form.”
