As previewed by AM, Prism opened Misericordia last Friday night to a excited and fashionable Los Angeles crowd.  The show featured the excellent curatorial (the show was curated by Birte Kleemann, Director at The Pace Gallery) quality you expect from Prism and included pieces by some of the best artists working today, like Terence Koh, Sterling Ruby, and Chris Burden, alongside some works that were hundreds of years old.  The exploration of Mercy never looked so interesting.
