    There’s a certain sense of irony about a Louie Vuitton-themed exhibition featuring a group of irreverent and street-inspired artists like Word to Mother, Chad Hasegawa and Ferris Plock. But Shooting Gallery’s current group show, “I <3 LV,” is a loose tribute to the fashion powerhouse’s patronage of the art world. Using the iconic logo as a starting point, the pieces in the show range from tongue-in-cheek criticisms of consumerism to graceful portraits that embody the brand’s elegance. The exhibition features Greg Gossel, Apex, Ferris Plock, Word to Mother, Helen Bayly, Lauren Napolitano, Chad Hasegawa, Casey Gray, Charmaine Olivia, Nick Flatt, Benjamin Clarke, Sergio Garcia and Niels Shoe Meulman and is on view through August 10. Take a look at our exclusive opening night photos below.

    Defrosting a building:

    For nine decades Fulton Market Cold Storage Company operated in Chicago’s meatpacking district with a full ten stories of freezing storage situated close to major railways. Last summer the company decided it was time to start fresh in a state-of-the-art facility outside of Chicago, so the building was sold…

    Read all about it over at Colossal.  The insane ice photos are by this fellow.

A Land Without Guns: How Japan Has Virtually Eliminated Shooting Deaths

Even the most basic framework of Japan’s approach to gun ownership is almost the polar opposite of America’s. U.S. gun law begins with the second amendment’s affirmation of the “right of the people to keep and bear arms” and narrows it down from there. Japanese law, however, starts with the 1958 act stating that “No person shall possess a firearm or firearms or a sword or swords,” later adding a few exceptions. In other words, American law is designed to enshrine access to guns, while Japan starts with the premise of forbidding it. The history of that is complicated, but it’s worth noting that U.S. gun law has its roots in resistance to British gun restrictions, whereas some academic literature links the Japanese law to the national campaign to forcibly disarm the samurai, which may partially explain why the 1958 mentions firearms and swords side-by-side.
