Now the the Smithsonian‘s National Portrait Gallery fiasco seems to be moving out of the spotlight, the LAMOCA‘s pulled-art issues are still continuing to make news. Following new director Jeffrey Deitch‘s decision to paint over a mural the museum itself had commissioned from the Italian street artist Blu, claiming they were worried that it would upset its neighbors, art supporters have come out to protest the move, and even Deitch himself has been lampooned as a censoring dictator. This week, a number of people showed up at the wall for another protest, bringing with them a laser-based graffiti device, which allowed people to temporarily paint messages on the now all-white wall. Here’s a clip explaining the controversy and some footage from Monday evening’s event:
