Araki: A Perspective @ PRISM Gallery

Sure, you know about The Sunset Strip’s rock and roll history and nightlife, but what you may not be so familiar with is the burgeoning art scene on this legendary boulevard.

Prism gallery, housed in a dramatic three-story architectural space near Sunset Plaza, has carved a new niche for the arts and boasts unique and thought-provoking exhibits. Its inaugural showcase highlighted the works of street artists Philip Frost and Barry McGee, and caught the eyes and attention of local and national art critics.

The gallery’s current exhibit showcases the work of one of Japan’s most notable photographers, Nobuyoshi Araki. Boasting more than 450 photography books to his name, Araki’s work has garnered international acclaim and stirred up controversy around the world. He explores a wide variety of topics, most notably the love of his wife.

Go behind-the-scenes and take a peak of Araki: A Perspective, then stop by to see it in person. The exhibit runs through May 9. Prism is open to the public Tuesday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 6 p.m.
