As with many trips to Los Angeles, this one included lots of art. Most notably, the TrustoCorp show thad gratefully extended its original dates. Funny and poignant work about poverty and the commercialization of America.
For much better photos of the exhibit look here here
Form the LeBasse website- “Paired with the exhibition at LeBasse Projects will be a citywide installation of “poverty kits,” including items such as a toothbrush, condoms, candy bars, cigarettes and a lighter. TrustoCorp hopes that this project will help shed light on the issue of urban homelessness. According to the Los Angeles Times, over 50,000 people in the metropolis are considered homeless, granting Los Angeles the distinction of being “home” to the largest homeless population in the country. The poverty kits will be placed in various locations throughout Los Angeles, and, when graphed out on a map, the cumulative locations of all the poverty kits will spell out an urgent message.”
