Here is Elsewhere Gallery (Pacific Design Center)

Since the 1980's, Serge Gainsbourg's music, film and art has reached legendary 
stature and an extraordinary legacy.  He has gained a following in the English-speaking 
world and inspired some visual artists and filmmakers for his decadent, fin-de-siècle 
aesthetic, his iconic stature, and fertile, post-Dada kind of imagination.

   To mark the 20th birthday of his disappearance, Los Angeles Wine Tasting and 
Here 
is Elsewhere gallery will pay tribute to Serge Gainsbourg and exhibit photographs of the 
late superstar.  Monsieur Gainsbourg is an exhibition that not only aims to pay homage 
to the cult artist, but also to reveal how he continues to be an inspiration for the 21st 
century.  Photographs from cult & avant-garde artists and friends of Gainsbourg* will be 
shown, while contemporary artists have been commissioned to present their own 
interpretations of Serge.

Immerse yourself in the French sixties and learn more about Gainsbourg’s provocative 
and mystical life, while you enjoy 
cherry-picked French wines & artisan cheese pairings
catered gourmet appetizers
 and listen to his French Pop repertoire.

* With works by: Franck Habicht, Kami,  Vanessa Atlan, Tom Recchion, Jules Muck, Robert Schwan, 
Remy Bond and more.  Curated by Yann Perreau (director of Here is Elsewhere) with Timothee 
Verrecchia (producer of "Monsieur Gainsbourg Revisited" (Universal) and curator of Gainsbourg 
exhibitions in Paris, Tokyo, and New York).
  All pieces (photographs and art) will be available for sale.
