Jason Lee & Plantation Host Photo Exhibition by Meeno Dec. 8th

Venice, CA - Working in the ’70s as Meeno Peluce, he was a famous child actor. Now Meeno has migrated to the other side of the camera, and longtime admirer Jason Lee (of NBC’s My Name Is Earl) will host an exhibition of Meeno’s work entitled “Morocco, Asymmetrically” December 8th at Plantation in Venice, CA.

In addition to his career as a popular actor, Jason Lee is an established patron of the art scene in Los Angeles. He previously hosted Meeno’s solo show “Vivid America,” which attracted celebrities such as Lisa Marie Presley, Juliette Lewis, Danny Masterson, Gottfried Helnwein, Giovanni Ribisi and Soleil Moon Frye (Meeno’s kid sister). Meeno’s latest exhibition promises to be equally well-received.

Undertaken in the Spring of ’06, “Morocco, Asymmetrically” charts a voyage from Marrakech, over the Atlas mountains, out to the Sahara desert and up into the more cosmopolitan yet equally ancient cities of Fez and Tangier.

Currently at work on SCAR, a collection of celebrity photographs, Meeno says of Morocco: "I came under the sway of the design work there. They don't have representational art, so everywhere there is design, and it's often quite ecstatic. My eye began to respond by finding equally intriguing design in every day Moroccan life. The difference for me, the way I found my own private god in it all, was to frame it up asymmetrically."

The exhibition will be held December 8th at 7:00 p.m. at Plantation’s Venice showroom, 1340 Abbot Kinney Blvd.
