At Artspace Warehouse, Three Takes on Fluidity Span Graffiti and Abstract Expressionism
Group shows are tricky to organize: one must find artists whose works share a certain sensibility or conceptual theme, but if any two are too alike, they may compete for the viewer’s attention.

“Fluidity in Ascending Scales” is on view at Artspace Warehouse, Los Angeles, Apr. 25–May 26, 2015.
