police beatingRandall Kallinen, flamboyant civil-rights attorney and part-time gallerist, is combining his two worlds: he’s holding a press conference tonight with the victim of an alleged police beating at his office/gallery, in conjunction with his exhibition Extra! Extra!,  a group show of art concerning the news media.
