On Saturday morning I visited La Friche de la Belle de Mai: part skatepark, studio space, music venue, library and gallery. Below is a bit of architectural appreciation –They had an exhibition of work by Asco, a group of LA based Mexican artists in the 1970s. From the little I could understand of the mission statement, Asco used often humorous, theatrical stunts (resulting in photographs and films) to highlight the injustices and excess in their community. I was totally taken with Skyscraper Skin, below.
I also like a series of photographs called First Love Object – showcasing bizarre creations.
