Fifth Floor Gallery presented, Chinatown League of Ultimate Benevolence (or C.L.U.B. for short), a collaboration between Los Angeles based artist, Bettina Hubby, and Fifth Floor Gallery. Part store, part art exhibit, the show featured a number of limited edition objects designed and made by Hubby and Fifth Floor Gallery owner, Robert Apodaca.
Hubby says: “This show, or shop, is our secret society that exists to observe this union of happenstance. It is a facade of a club, and an occasion to celebrate the commingling of the real and the unreal that make up Chinatown and its mother city. The idea of the facade is intrinsic to los angeles, as is belonging to its various inner circles. This is a club to honor the facade and the real of chinatown, LA.”
