The Adonis Project: Masquerade The notorious Adonis Theater, legendary gay adult movie house, will be creatively resurrected for one night only as artists from the LA queer community descend on Human Resources to share their hot visions around themes of Gay Sex and Queer Liberation in context of the current state of assimilation, evolving LGBTQ space and shrinking ghettos.

WOAH Last-Look:
Suddenly I See Crystal Clear at VACANCY
Christopher Füllemann and Daniel V. Keller transform the narrow walls of VACANCY into a conduit transcoding a simulated stream of natural wonder. A sculptural installation created on-site in two-weeks, the exhibition inaugurates an ongoing residency series visualizing the collaboration born between artist couples. Füllemann and Keller stage a reflective environment where organic matter is mapped into a cascading frozen composite— placing us within the work rather than on top of it. Closing Friday, Oct 9th with gallery hours 12-5pm
