Joint Custody Project @ Found Gallery
Found Gallery curator Jonny Coleman selected forty-eight L.A.-based artists to collaborate on pieces of work. The artists were anonymously paired with one another, and each team was given a blank surface to work from, along with the title of a Supreme Court case to guide their work. Each artist had the work for one week, documenting each day’s work through photographs. Then they switched. In total, each artist had the work twice. Through Sat 3/17.

Swap of the Golden Pig @ Betalevel
This Saturday is the Lunar New Year festival (the Year of the Golden Pig no less). Golden Dragon Parade. Firecrackers. Car show. The works. You and a hundred thousand other people all crammed into Chinatown. And after the festival winds down, everyone will try to simultaneously cram into the Chinatown bars…But not you. You know a better place. You know a place where you can get a drink for naught but a kindly donation. You know a place where people are actually interested in your extensive krautrock MP3 collection. You know a place where you can sing karaoke to that one Disney song, in Italian. You will turn to your posse and say: “Forget those overcrowded overpriced bars – come follow me down this dark alley!”
