WAKE Recap / spaceLUNA

The Superslice recently sponsored WAKE, the second gallery show hosted by spaceLUNA and Cement Studios. Aside from being enthused about spaceLUNA’s location in the American Cement Building, one of the rare architectural marvels in the area, we had the chance to see some good work by young artists from Los Angeles and San Francisco.

The theme of the show was loosely based on the Mexican holiday; Día de Muertos or Day of the Dead, taking place the weekend before Halloween. Naturally, most of the pieces were morbid in character, dealing with theme of death, darkness, skeletons, skulls and so forth. A cool collection of stuff.
