12 Paintings by Laura Owens @ Ooga Booga #2, Los Angeles

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, February 19, 2013

Ooga Booga has always been an epicenter of good art and culture in Chinatown, but this new space, especially with LA-based artist Owens' work in it, looks like it will be a great space for exhibitions in the months to come.
