We were very excited to see the title of Ian Francis' newest exhibition, 10,000 Years From Now. Obviously, his work resonates with this title perfectly.

Nothing says comedy, economic uncertainty, and the Euro/American relationship more than a portrait of the Terminator made out of porn. How perfect is that? Tomorrow night (Thursday July 28), at the new Post No Bills space in Venice Beach, will be the opening of the European Bailout Show.
