Christian Rieben, oh and Lloyd Dobler Gallery RAIDED BY THE FEDS

While following Proximity Magazine’s blurb about Chicago police trying to close up Lloyd Dobler Gallery (reportedly for sight compaints, disturbing pieces, and providing alcohol to minor artworld celebrities), I decided Christian Rieben’s work was pretty great. If you’re in Wisconsin you can swing by Stumptown Gallery until July 14th to see the work yourself.

Make sure to see Assfixiated at Lloyd Dobler Gallery before the cops take it as evidence!
