While following Proximity Magazine’s blurb about Chicago police trying to close up Lloyd Dobler Gallery (reportedly for sight compaints, disturbing pieces, and providing alcohol to minor artworld celebrities), I decided Christian Rieben’s work was pretty great. If you’re in Wisconsin you can swing by Stumptown Gallery until July 14th to see the work yourself.

Rumor is he’s teaching a painting class at College of Dupage this fall. Specific rumors indicate that class as ART-2222-001.

Make sure to see Assfixiated at Lloyd Dobler Gallery before the cops take it as evidence!
