DEEP
Deep is nothing short of a phenomenon driving the dance music scene in Los Angeles and beyond. For 18 years, DEEP has prided itself on procuring and presenting the finest soulful electronic music DJs and artists from around the world. DEEP forges on as an internationally esteemed sanctuary for house music lovers.

DEEP is much more than the sum of its parts. It is not just an inviting dance floor, soulful house records and big bass speakers. It exists within the collective energy of its dedicated patrons, blessing the faithful and free who dance in celebration of life, which, if only once a month, is made of pure bliss.

Gary Simmons: Fade to Black

Much of Simmons’s work in this exhibit centers on his signature erasure techniques. Early in his career, he drew in white chalk on readymade chalkboards or directly onto slate-painted walls, then smudged the images with his hands. In recent years, he has adapted the process to canvas and large-scale wall works, such as “Blue Field Explosions” (2009), a monumental drawing in the stadium that is home to the Dallas Cowboys.
