You may have heard about the Chain Letter exhibition at the Shoshanna Wayne Gallery at Bergamont Station in Santa Monica, well I am one of the artists in the exhibition or more like, the event. The way it worked was that an email was sent to 10 artists who then sent an email to 10 more artists that they admired and asked them to submit. Over 1600 artists finally were able to contribute. They closed the Shoshanna Wayne after I got in and then opened a couple of other spaces to accommodate the art. Over 1600 artists were able to contribute.

It was quite a scene on intake day, the police had barricaded and closed the street leading into Begamont Station after a couple of hours. I can only imagine what opening night was like, probably a mob scene!

The chain letter concept was carried out in other cities across the world, such as Chicago, New York, Berlin, Paris, Johannesburg and more.
