    I have deep, visceral memories of SRL’s hellacious 2005 show in Downtown Los Angeles, which caused me to take many photos and do a lot of overwriting:

    If their work doesn’t simultaneously horrify and/or inspire you, you and I can never be friends.

      That 2005 show was at my now defunct gallery Dangerous Curve. Mark said, at the time, that it was one of his favorite shows. The producer of the event, the invaluable Susan Joyce, somehow convinced the city to let us close our little street and the gang went to town. a couple thousand people showed up including police standing on their cars for a better view. The fire dept was very cooperative and Pauline knows exactly how to go up to the line and back off before everything just gets too big. It was the literal last gasp of the arts district before condo-ization took over. We moved out the next week and the sidewalks and street lights were in place within months.
