In the last one week, from doing “light” construction at GR2, I’ve learned a lot about walls and even have issues with them too.
DRAWING THE LINE AT JANMBy ERIC NAKAMURA

“Drawing the Line is part of Pacific Standard Time. This unprecedented collaboration, initiated by the Getty, brings together more than sixty cultural institutions from across Southern California for six months beginning October 2011 to tell the story of the birth of the L.A. art scene.”

CHRIS BURDEN’S METROPOLIS II AT LACMABy MARTIN WONG

On January 14, Chris Burden’s Metropolis II will finally be unveiled at LACMA. The kinetic sculpture, which was slated to show in the fall, took a little longer to realize than expected.

HAROSHI OPENING AT HUF WAREHOUSEBy MARTIN WONG

The Tokyo sculptor isn’t some poseur who simply paints on skateboards or appropriates the culture for street cred. His pieces (made out of used boards by DLX team riders in this particular case) actually capture and convey the energy and power of skating from a skater’s point of view.
