Exhibition ∴ The Stars Are Maligned

11.11.11 is the artistic unification of the triptych composed of Anthony Silva, Rudy Coby and Nick Kushner for a collaborative show at Studio Servitú in Downtown LA. The exhibition is a celebration of the works of three varied artists in the realms of magic/performance, video/photography, and painting/fine art. Each will be featuring their respective performances, installations and hanged artworks, all of which correlate to one another.


Anthony Silva is an award-winning filmmaker and photographer, who co-wrote Marilyn Manson’s forthcoming film, Phantasmagoria: The Visions of Lewis Carroll, as well as co-creating the film’s iconic trailer.

Rudy Coby, aka “The Coolest Magician On Earth”, is a legend within the world of magic & illusion. He has performed around the globe for over 20 years, influencing an entire generation of performers, magicians, artists & filmmakers with his art.

Nick Kushner has garnered attention from the alternative press in America and abroad for using a most personal pigment: his own blood. He likens his works to alchemy by the literal immersion within his art and celebrated his first solo exhibition in September 2011, at Studio Servitu.

Sponsored by Lip Service, Jade Absinthe and Evil Wine, the exhibition opening boasted an attended of over 500 which included celebrity appearances such as Marilyn Manson, Janice Dickinson, Ginger Fish, Michael Hussar and many others. For those who attended Kushner’s solo exhibition at Servitu last month, the night was a mere glimpse into a much larger world composed of a circle of artists who have collaborated and worked alongside each other for the last decade.
