Faction Art Projects returns this Fall in a collaboration with the East Los Angeles Gallery, Subliminal Projects, in a bi-coastal exhibition entitled Visual Language.

The exhibition will run simultaneously at both galleries. In each gallery the artworks will work in parallel or collaboratively, while others will juxtapose and subvert ~ offering a strong critical frame through which to view contemporary culture in this period of “fake news” and “alternative facts.”
