The Opening Of Mario Ayala & Greg Ito's "Sun Sprawl" @ Club Pro Los Angeles

These stanzas of Wanda Coleman’s reach across time to help locate the work of Los Angeles-based artists Mario Ayala and Greg Ito. Following in the tradition of the city’s unofficial poet laureate, Ayala and Ito explore the ecology of symbols distinct to their birthplace, elevating and reconfiguring the ubiquitous visual language and objects central to the experience and mythology of Los Angeles. Sun Sprawl is on view through April 28th at Club Pro 1525 South Main Street, 3rd Floor Los Angeles. photographs by Lani Trock
