LACE’S INFAMOUS VALENTINE’S DAY PARTY IS BACK!
Featuring brand new or rarely seen explicit videos and performances from Southern California artists, such as my friend Charong Chow, who years ago made one of my favorite paintings called "my $508.78 pair of pink prada boots" (it was a big white canvas with only 2 tiny pink dots on it). anyhew...
Lust 4 LACE celebrates the grand tradition of years past and all manner of delightful debauchery by creating a night featuring explicit, naked, juicy, tasty, slippery, slimy, crunchy, gooey, sexy, voyeuristic, fetishistic live action animated narrative squishy hand-made video, live art and musical performances. These works will kick off LACE’s 30th anniversary and celebrate three outrageous decades of performance and media art in Los Angeles.
