Opening tonight at the Santa Monica Museum of Art (SMMOA) at Bergamot Station in Santa Monica, CA: The Donkey Show, which "explores the border's intersection of myth and reality through a blend of over 200 rare tourist photographs, vintage nightlife ephemera, and pop songs born of American myths of Tijuana." The exhibition is guest-curated by cultural anthropologist and graphic design historian Jim Heimann and author and music critic Josh Kun.
For those of you in the Los Angeles area, the show's opening tonight. On Wednesday, Jan 26, the co-curators will be hosting a conversation about the show from 7-8 pm at nearby Track 16 Gallery, with a party featuring Nortec Collective artist DJ Clorofila from 8-10. Should be great fun.
