Valerie made this post is on our sister site art.blogging.la but I thought I was worth cross posting here as well. I don’t know what happened either, but it would be a serious problem if Law Enforcement was now deciding what is or isn’t art.
“I didn’t make it to the event, but apparently Transport Gallery’s Mark of the Beast event a couple of weeks ago had some unexpected guests crash the party. According to their web site:
‘At 10:40 pm, April 23rd, the LAPD chose to shut down this event due to the ‘agressive and offensive’ nature of the show’s content. Transport Gallery is seeking your help in exposing this obvious breach of First Amendment rights. If you attended the Mark of the Beast, and have any information or comments regarding the police’s actions please contact us by email at info (at) transportgallery.com. Witness statements will be helpful in this situation. Thank you, TG.’”
