Almost exactly a year after the debut of Paul d’Orleans’ Custom Revolution exhibit at the Petersen, he’s back for Revolution 2: Electric Boogaloo. Sorry, I couldn’t help myself. According to the Petersen, Custom Revolution was the world’s first exhibit that’s focused on “alternative motorcycle customization”. Electric Revolution continues Paul’s pioneering guest curation ways as it is “the world’s first exhibition featuring only electric motorcycles.”
Per the Petersen, “The electric vehicle scene is exploding, with new startups popping up every week. E-Bikes are the hottest sector of new-tech transportation, as dozens of small, tech-oriented companies vie for the top spots in a wide-open field. Electric Revolution will explore the history and current state of the electric industry, seen through the handiwork of both visionary home-builders and established manufacturers, with ultra-stylish contemporary designs that point the way to the future.”
The opening reception is Thursday, April 4th and it includes food, drinks, music, and a panel discussion. You can preview the exhibition here, and then buy your tickets at this link. I’m going to grab at ticket for myself once I’m back in the US, and I hope to see you there! If you can’t make the reception, the exhibit opens to the public on April 6th.
