"A collaborative group called "Pleasure/Function" that included Peter Fend, Colen Fitzgibbon, Jenny Holzer."

February 1980: the "Pleasure/Function" exhibition (by Fend, Fitzgibbon, Holzer, Nadin, Prince and Winters) takes place in Los Angeles, in David Amico's 3000 square foot space on 616 South Broadway, 5th floor, which he made available for artist's shows and performances.

"David Amico was one of the artists who, in the late 1970's early 80's, helped put Downtown Los Angeles on the map. Loft space was abundant and cheap. Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions (LACE) had just opened down the street, and downtown was rapidly becoming the focus of the Los Angeles art scene."
