The Red Bull Music Academy is hosting an exhibition of by conceptual artist Mel Chin, who persuaded Aaron Spelling from 1995 to 1997 to allow him to provide artworks and props for the sudsy show’s apartment-complex set, with coded cultural messages on topics like reproductive rights, American foreign policy, alcoholism and sexual politics. (Huh?)
