Black Maria Gallery presents the new exhibition, entitled “The Coffin Show: Between Life and Death” featuring the works of 16 Los Angeles-area artists, will open on October 8. Each of the participating artists was given an actual coffin and asked to transform it into a work of art and a personal statement.
