China conquers America
In Federico Solmi's films at Luis de Jesus Gallery, each scene looks like a precocious kid's color-crayon masterpiece. Yellow, red and army green dominate in these narratives, which take a growing American fear -- that China will, or has, surpassed us in brains, money and power -- to its garish outer limits. A Chinese demagogue uses everything he's learned from U.S. capitalists to invade and conquer the nation. Soon, the world is an uninhabitable land of flashing signs and commercial billboards and life as we know it comes to an end. 2685 S. La Cienega Blvd.; through Oct. 20. (310) 838-6000, luisdejesus.com.
Tuesdays-Saturdays. Starts: Sept. 8. Continues through Oct. 20, 2012
