This is a recent project RETNA did with the AAM, American Association of Museums, and L.A. Art Machine at this years Museum without Borders conference. The “Wall of Ideas”, curated by Bryson Strauss, was an interactive painting between RETNA, Mear One and conference visitors. Additionally there was an open discussion about social, cultural, economic, and artistic challenges facing the country’s leading cultural institutions. Here are some photos from the event.

Via Kofie: I think He sums it up properly.

As many of you know the Manifest Equality Mural “JUSTICE” El Mac, Retna and myself painted was white washed over in the first week of April, 2010. My time lapse was the first official release of the process of the wall. Shig & Med of ‘Viejas del Mercado‘ & Mid City Arts just released their video of the wall, a homage and funeral doc of sorts. Deep and beautiful. They captured a certain tone in this one, as if they new the wall wasn’t going to last much longer….
