Devils’ Town is a group show that reflects Los Angeles’ dark past. A past which we think we know, but is often covered up and not exposed in meaningful ways that go beyond mere voyeurism into past misdeeds. This show hopes to bring some of the darkness, including racism and anarchy, into the light.

August 2-30, 2014, Red Pipe Gallery, 978 Chung King Road, Chinatown

Opening reception: August 2, 7pm to 11pm. The show runs through August 30, 2014.
