Machine man

The L.A. Weekly has a nifty cover story on the man behind the curtain at Machine Project, the gallery-studio-artists' collective space where you can take knitting classes and eat jam, on Alvarado next door to the Downbeat Cafe.

Gendy Alimurung writes:

[Mark] Allen spends a lot of time thinking about Machine, situating it within the larger sociopolitical-economic context, picking out its shows, tracing its path, analyzing how it functions. But who is he, really?

Best to leave that one for the tabloids, though the journalist does wrap up the story with a peek into the mad creator's bedroom, where he spots a chair and rumpled sheets.
