LENIN: LA LOVE STORY


There may be no unlikelier lover in all of Los Angeles than Vladamir Ilyich Lenin, yet I managed to find him (and a diminutive transsexual Chairman Mao) at the corner of La Brea and 4th Street.  The sculpture is part of an installation celebrating Peter Noever's 25 years in the curation biz.  Noted hugging enthusiasts "The Gao Brothers" title the piece "Miss Mao Trying to Poise Herself on the Top of Lenin's Head".
