Located in Culver City, Royal/T is a playful blending of café, concept shop, and art exhibition space. The 10,000-square-foot space reflects the interior realm of fantasy that strongly influences the artists included in Owner Susan Hancock’s art collection. The institutional dimensions of Royal/T lie within its art space; many of its exhibitions are curated solely from Hancock’s Japanese-influenced private collection, with the goal of engaging the community through reflective lectures, workshops, pop-up events, and collaborations. Royal/T’s interdisciplinary initiative cleanly melds with Hancock’s desire to educate and entice. From January 14, 2012 through March 25, 2012, Royal/T presents “TAG you’re it!”—curator Amber Noland’s look to the future with a contemporary perspective on art at “child’s eye view.” The exhibit will be free and open to the public from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. daily, with extended hours on Wednesdays from 10 a.m. – 10 p.m. For additional information, guests can call Royal/T at 310.559.6300 and visit www.royal-t.org. Royal/T is also on Facebook and Twitter.
