curated by Nic Cha Kim
Mahoney grew up in New York, where he received a BFA in Illustration from The Pratt Institute. He continued his studies in graphic design, typography, photography, sculpture, and production design at UCLA and NYU. He worked for Walt Disney Feature Animation for several years as a visual development artist and had a one man show of erotic drawings at The Pacific Asia Museum. Recently, he wrote and directed a live-action short film which was accepted into the New York International Independent Film Festival. He’s currently producing an independent live action feature length film.
On Oct. 13th and Nov. 10th, from 8:00-8:30PM, J. Joseph Mahoney will give a lecture on overcoming censorship through digital media. “As censorship takes hold of our culture, strangling our artists and filmmakers, the digital revolution marches forward with infinite possibilities for independent thinkers to get the work out into the world.”
Situated next to each other, Niche.LA & Lounge 441 form one space that features an 18-seat private screening room and a mixed-media/video art gallery. A digital cooperation in the middle of Gallery Row, these two “mini-galleries” offer an eclectic artistic experience on the 4th floor of the Spring Arts Tower in less than 750 square feet.
